Session offers ways to cope with thoughts of self-harm

You would think that something that is the second leading cause of death among young adults would get our attention, says Annette Dufresne.

“You would think that something that accounts for more loss of life in the world than the total number of deaths from war, acts of terrorism, and homicide combined would be front and centre as an issue that needs to be addressed,” says the clinical supervisor of the Psychological Services & Research Centre. “But many people probably wouldn’t guess that suicide is responsible for such a high loss of life and potential.”
