T.A.L.K

TELL… someone if you are having thoughts of suicide or if someone you know is experiencing emotional distress ASK… “Are you having thoughts of suicide?” If yes, LISTEN to the person’s concerns and get them connected to help. Help is available. Connect to KEEPSAFE resources listed at the bottom of this site.

There is HOPE!

History

SPIN was formed in 2001 after agency and community interest to establish a forum to work on suicide prevention and promote wellness in the Brandon area. The Youth Suicide Prevention workplan was originally a separate committee with Reclaiming Hope funds from the MB Government. Eventually, with dedication from former members such as Kathy Foley, it was combined into one larger network as it is today. Many projects and initiatives have changed over the years to respond to needs in the community, however some are longstanding and continue to this day.

Grief Resources

We have several grief resources on our website, including information on our Suicide Bereavement Support Group, as well as books and other readings. Find all of that on our Grief Resources page.
