In Canada, June is the national awareness month for many things, including Pride Month and Men’s Mental Health Month! To show support and encourage help-seeking behaviour, WRSPC has compiled a list of local, provincial, and national resources and supports for both men and the 2SLGBTQ+ community. You can check out the Men’s Mental Health and Suicide Prevention resources below, and view our Resources and Supports for the 2SLGBTQ+ community here.
