Welcome to Life Voice.
Our vision is to create suicide safer communities one person at a time. We do this through mental health workshops, refined workplace mental health policies and procedures, and making crisis support resources easily accessible to the public.
Our mission is to engage individuals to feel empowered and equipped to respond to a person in crisis, using evidence-based, proven methods of support.
We teach the Mental Health First Aid, ASIST, safeTALK, and The “ASK” Workshop. These workshops empower participants to better support people living with depression, anxiety, PTSD (Posttraumatic stress disorder), alcohol and drug misuse, psychosis, and thoughts of ending their life. There is hope, and a way through.

Mental Health First Aid
MHFA Basic focuses on the four most common mental health disorders including substance related, mood related, anxiety and trauma related, and psychotic disorders. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with their family, friends, communities, and workplaces. Over 300,000 Canadians have been trained in MHFA since 2007.
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) teaches the participants how to apply intervention skills with a person at risk of suicide. Notice signs that someone may be at risk of suicide. Learn how to ask about suicide, listen, and build a safety plan. ASIST has been taught to over 1 million people around the world since 1983.
During this 3.5 hour safeTALK workshop we teach participants suicide awareness skills, how to ask about suicide, and connect a person-at-risk with a KeepSafe connection. KeepSafe connections may include an ASIST-trained caregiver like a trusted friend or crisis-line. safeTALK has been taught to over 350,000 people worldwide since 2006.
The "ASK" Workshop
The “ASK” Workshop (Assessing for Suicide in Kids) was developed for those working and living with kids 14 and under. Participants learn a research based definition of suicidality in children, how to assess for suicide risk, key questions helpers should ask, and how to work with other adults in the child’s life to enhance safety.
