Discussion, presentation to focus on suicide related to mental health

CALGARY — Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Prairie Mountain Health Advisory Council (HAC) invite local and area residents to a virtual Community Conversation on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

AHS and the council have identified suicide related to mental health as one of the most significant challenges facing communities. Participants will hear from AHS experts who will share current statistics and available services in your communities. There will be a short overview of the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training — or ASIST — program, an empowering tool for suicide intervention. There will also be facilitated discussion groups in which you’re invited to share what you are experiencing in your community and how AHS can meet your future needs.

This virtual conversation will take place on Zoom and a personalized link will be emailed to you after you register.

To register for this virtual event, email free to share this invitation with others in the community. For more information, or if you have difficulties registering, please call 1-877-275-8830 or email

HACs play an important role in supporting the strategic direction of AHS by engaging members of their communities throughout Alberta in a respectful, transparent and accountable manner. Public participation is essential to improving the quality and accountability of health services. Working in partnership with AHS is an important way to ensure services are more responsive to the needs of those who use them.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta.
