Soles Remembering Souls ‐ Connecting Survivors will be held at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo on Sunday November 23, 2014 to support those left behind after deaths by suicide
Every year, many people lose their lives to suicide, leaving behind family, friends, colleagues and others who struggle to make sense of their loss. Our community is unfortunately no exception. On Vancouver Island, we lose more people to suicide than to motor vehicle accidents and accidental overdose combined. Research also tells us that someone who has lost a significant person to suicide is at a 9 times greater risk themselves.
