Canadian Mental Health Association Looking To Rename East Windsor Hill

The Canadian Mental Health Association, Windsor-Essex County Branch is looking to the community to provide suggestions on renaming a hill at Little River Park, located in east Windsor, unofficially called “Suicide Hill.”

“We believe the time is now to officially name this hill with a proper name since research indicates glorifying or celebrating suicide can be detrimental to the work we are doing in education and prevention, said Kim Willis, Director, Communications & Mental Health Promotion.

Submissions can be made at until June 18. At that time, the top five submissions will be shared with the community to vote on the name. This name will then be shared with Windsor City Council with a recommendation to adopt this new name. The winning submission will receive a $100 cash prize.

“We must be aware of outdated language used in media, in everyday lives and even in unofficial situations if we are going to change the conversation around suicide,” says Willis. “All of us can be champions against stigma and for education and even prevention. When we do, we advocate for accurate and respectful language.”
