With the belief that suicide is preventable, the mission of Suicide Action Montréal (SAM) is to help prevent these incidents through greater access to information, quality services and resources. SAM recognizes that suicide prevention is a process and provides direct support to those who are lonely, depressed and contemplating suicide. SAM also assists those left behind by suicide including the family and the individual`s social network, support workers, and/or other professionals involved. The strength of these services relies on the commitment of dedicated paid staff and highly trained volunteers. SAM continues to build its expertise through evidence-based research and learning from other community organizations.
