About this Event

***Our organization, FNHSSM and our International Advisory Committee have been monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and considering the implications on the upcoming World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Centre 2020. Our priority is the health and safety of our attendees. Many of our communities and organizations regionally and nationally have put travel bans in place until further notice which limits future travel plans. To support communities in their initiated travel bans and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it was decided that we will push the conference back until May 2021. We sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. Our decision was not made lightly, it was based on ensuring the health and wellbeing of our communities during this time. Once the dates are confirmed, the dates will be updated.

The World Suicide Prevention Conference 2020 will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in May 2021.

The conference will focus on:

• Ways to prevent suicide through reducing risks;

• Protective factors;

• Life promotion encompassed by culture and Indigenous knowledge; and

• To showcase wise practices of life promotion based on the strengths of our peoples.

At least 500 people from Aotearoa- New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii and the Americas are expected to be in attendance.
