September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day that aims to raise awareness on the issue of suicide, while working to reduce stigma and prevent suicide worldwide. Encompas understands the unique ways that the first responder community is impacted by suicide and suicidal ideation. Our thoughts are with the family members, colleagues and friends of the OPPA members that have been lost to suicide, their service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Encompas is committed to promoting awareness around suicide and suicide prevention, and we are honoured to walk alongside and support active and retired OPPA members and their families who may be experiencing thoughts of suicide, feeling isolated, alone and overwhelmed.  Also, we are here to support if you are experiencing the loss of a loved one.

If you or someone you know is struggling, Encompas, powered by Dalton Associates, is here for you as a confidential resource 24/7 – call 1-866-794-9117, or visit to connect with an Encompas Care Manager.  We will partner with you to keep you safe.
