The First Huddle
Huddle Up for Suicide Prevention kicked off in Calgary, AB in November 2016. Clym Atkin and Jill Viccars were grappling to make sense of the one-year anniversary of their brother-in-law’s death due to suicide and wanted to take action.
The goal of is to remove the stigma around mental illness and suicide by building community. They brought 75 people together to tailgate at a Stampeders game and start talking about mental health. Huddle Up continues to build community in Calgary, Edmonton and, most recently, Regina. It is much bigger than us – it is a way to honour the moms, dads, wives, husbands, sons, daughters, friends, coworkers, and loved ones who have a gaping hole in their lives as a result of suicide.
