SUPER-KT: Suicide Prevention Education and  Research - Knowledge Translation Series

SUPER-KT is an online Knowledge Translation series that takes place over Zoom on a monthly to bi-weekly basis.  These sessions are available, free of charge, to those interested in joining a safe, respectful, and informative “community of discourse” on suicide and its prevention.  Presenters and participants can include clinicians, healthcare, and community and social service providers, together with researchers, scholars, and other academics, students and trainees, healthcare administrators, policymakers and policy experts, people with lived experience, and other interested community members.

As these sessions focus on suicide and its prevention, a sensitive topic, please use your best judgement in choosing to join it and in monitoring and attending to your emotional experience. If you find the subject matter distressing, please feel free to turn-down the sound, send a message to the moderator, or leave the session.
Due to the sensitive topic matter of this series, you might find contacting some of the following helpful if you are experiencing emotional difficulties: 
  1. A supportive family member or friend
  2. A member of the clergy (Rabbi, Priest, Nun, Minister, Pastor, Imam, etc.)
  3. Your family doctor or other healthcare provider
  4. Community Social Workers (in your neighbourhood hospital, clinic, or community centre)
  5. Psychiatrists or Psychologists (in your neighbourhood hospital, clinic, or in private practices)
  6. In the event of an emergency or crisis: Phone 911
