News and Upcoming Events
In honour of International Survivors of Suicide Day (November 23, 2019)
Supporting the Resilience of Suicide Loss Survivors
The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is offering an informative two-hour workshop that will explore the physiological, emotional and spiritual aspects of suicide loss and the impacts of loneliness, isolation, stigma, and bereavement on our emotional and physical health. Join us in Nanaimo on November 25, 2019, for this comprehensive presentation.
Our Crisis services are listed in two regional editions of the Overdose Prevention 2019 Resource Guide, published by Black Press.
The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is included among many sources of support in the important and informative Overdose Prevention 2019 Resource Guide's Central Island edition. Our Crisis Services are advertised on page 25 and are listed on page 29. A Greater Victoria edition, issued in April 2019, also lists our Crisis Services shown on page 35. The guides include articles and features to foster discussion about the risks of drug overdose, inform readers about prevention, and provide step-by-step instructions to save the life of someone who is experiencing an opioid overdose.
