In light of International World Suicide Prevention Day on Sunday,

The NWT Help line is offering a group counselling session on Suicide Awareness.

“If somebody was interested in doing one of the telephone group sessions they would just call the toll free help line number and say that they wanted to register for one,” says Sara Chorostkowski, Manager of Mental Health and Addictions for the GNWT. “Some of them are open sessions where there could be a lot of different people and some of them are a series where it would be the same group of people that would participate in all of the sessions on that topic.”

The Suicide Awareness telephone group session will be on Monday, September 18th at 8pm.

To register, call 1-800-661-0844 or visit the NWT Help Line facebook page or the NWT Help Line website for more information.
