June 2021 was Buddy Up month

Centre for Suicide Prevention, along with all our Champions, raised awareness for men’s suicide and how it can be prevented.

How to be a Champion

The role of a Buddy Up Champion is to support a buddy who may be struggling, to learn about men’s suicide prevention and to encourage others to become involved.

We need you!

As a Champion, you’ll share information about how suicide in men can be prevented. This can be done in so many ways! Find out more about how you can spread the word when you sign up to become a Champion.
