Suicide is still the leading health-related cause of death for young people in Canada. 1 in 7 young people in Canada report having suicidal thoughts to say nothing of the ones who don't report. This year, 150,000 will act on their thoughts by attempting suicide, and, for hundreds of them, the attempt will be fatal.
Things need to change. And we are leading the way.
Jack.org is Canada's only charity training and empowering young leaders to revolutionize mental health in every province and territory. Through Do Something, Jack Talks, Jack Chapters, and Jack Summits, young leaders identify and dismantle barriers to positive mental health in their communities. And through ambitious innovations in youth mental health like Be There, we give people the mental health resources they need to educate themselves. We're working towards a Canada where all young people understand how to take care of their own mental health and look out for each other. A Canada without shame, where all those who need support get the help they deserve. Our movement is powered by tens of thousands of advocates and allies across every province and territory of Canada. And we're just getting started.
