2nd Primary Care Provider Training a Success!
On November 5, over 50 primary care providers from Waterloo Region attended the Council's second presentation to increase knowledge in working with the suicidal patient. Our community was fortunate to have suicide consultant Yvonne Bergmans from St Michaels' hospital in Toronto as the key presenter. A big thank you to the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund for supporting this important training.
