Staff, patients and families at GRH’s KW and Freeport campuses have marked World Suicide Prevention Day with combined butterfly releases.

The butterfly releases were timed to take place along with a community butterfly release organized by the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council.

Hospital staff members conducted several days of art and educational activities throughout GRH’s mental health program. The focus of this year’s activities was on talking about suicide, and how to best support people who have suicidal thoughts.
