The Southern Regional Suicide Prevention Committee runs an annual campaign titled “Out of The Blue”. Out of The Blue is a suicide prevention campaign designed to encourage help seeking behaviour, connect communities and individuals with resources, and provide accurate mental health information in addition to raising awareness about mental health. Each year Out of The Blue targets grade 10 classrooms within the region using an in class presentation on suicide intervention and help seeking behaviour. The goal is to help normalize help seeking behaviour and reduce stigma associated with mental health. The schools, as well as the communities, are encouraged to get involved and create an activity on their own that raises awareness about mental health and seeks to reduce stigma as well as connect individuals with available resources. The campaign wraps up each year with a gala event where prizes are awarded for the top activities and recognition is given to all participants for their efforts on behalf of mental health and suicide intervention.
