Mission and vision of the Suicide Prevention Centre of Montreal

Preventing suicide and its impacts

Mission

The mission of the Suicide Prevention Centre of Montreal (SPCM) is to prevent suicide and its impacts by ensuring access to quality services for individuals considering suicide, their families, and friends, and the mental health professionals who work with them. In addition, the SPCM relies on the commitment and development of skills of individuals and organizations in the community.

Mandate

Our mandate is to prevent suicide in the greater Montreal area. This mandate is impossible without the collaboration if the SPCM with a multitude of organizations that offer services to the Montreal community for different issues (homelessness, substance use, intimate partner violence, etc.) in order to create services that are complementary with the existing ecosystem.

Vision of impact 2023–2026

Where will we be in 3 years…?

Through the quality and accessibility of its services, the Montreal SPC will have contributed to a decrease in the number of suicides in the Greater Montreal area.

In addition, the work accomplished by the Montreal CPS will have helped to break down the systemic taboos surrounding suicide and to raise public awareness of the issues involved.

Be part of
the change

Although the SPC of Montreal relies on its counsellors and volunteers, the organization needs its members to convey its mission, to spread the word, but most importantly to make known the needs and opinions of each individual in order to provide a service that is relevant to them and to the needs of everyone.

The Montreal SPC invites you to join its members in order to be part of the change and take concrete action on suicide prevention in your community!
