Event description

Description

AfterWhys is a stage play about the importance of hope and resilience for seniors who face mental health challenges, including suicide. This live performance also depicts, with humour and compassion, how we can better support those around us who may need help.

Canadians age 60 and over are one of the most at-risk groups for suicide. AfterWhys opens the conversation about this sometimes taboo subject, and opens our minds to how we can each help family and friends who may be struggling and even at risk of suicide.

This 40-minute play presentation is supported by having counsellors in the room for audience members who may be upset by its content. AfterWhys is followed by an 15-minute discussion with the audience about the play’s community-engaged creation process and the issues raised in the presentation.

The play was created for the community through story sharing and input from those who have been impacted by suicide.
