At the ASR Suicide & Depression Studies Program, we are passionate about amplifying the voice of people with lived experience and increasing mental health literacy in the community. We host several public events throughout the year, which can be found on our website and social media channels.
Co-hosted by the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) and the Arthur Sommer Rotenberg Chair in Suicide and Depression Studies at St. Michael’s Hospital, this one-day conference on September 12th will focus on the arts in the healing process for those affected by suicide, and will take place as part of our outreach in recognition of World Suicide Prevention Day.
Join us on September 12 in Toronto for an exclusive screening of the documentary THE S WORD, a new film by Lisa Klein. This event is being presented by CASP, ASR and MNjcc with support from Pfizer as part of the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) Conference on September 11-12.
Keep an eye out for more ASR events in the future, including a public forum on Social Media and Mental Health.
On February 9, 2017, the ASR collaborated with the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario (MDAO) to host a feature screening of the documentary In the Spotlight about social anxiety, directed by Toronto-based filmmaker Katie Cooper. Check out an event highlights video here!
