First Candle

Established in 1993, First Candle is the leading national non-profit committed to ending Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), accidental infant suffocation and preventable stillbirths while providing bereavement support to those families who have experienced a loss. Every year in this country 27,000 babies die due to SIDS, other sleep-related issues or are stillborn. SIDS is still the leading cause of death for babies one month to one year of age. Through our program, Straight Talk for Infant Safe Sleep, we educate parents, caregivers and other care providers on the American Academy of Pediatrics safe sleep guidelines which could reduce the rate of SIDS and accidental suffocation by 50%. We support researchers who are leading the way in identifying the causes of SIDS and stillbirth and collaborate with other organizations around the world who are doing the same. And, for those parents, sibling and other family members who have experienced a loss, we provide bereavement support materials, online support groups, a grief line and peer counselors.  (Read More...)

Attachment Network of Manitoba

The Attachment Network is a multi-organizational committee that is comprised of representatives from various sectors, including health, justice, education, and social services, who are interested in promoting and enhancing secure attachment across the life span. Our mandate is around 3 pillars: Networking (we meet with anyone locally who is available to attend, 3 times a year); Advocacy (the messages we put forward around building secure attachment as the foundation for healthy human development can find their way into social, fiscal, political and program policy decisions) and Education ( we host an annual conference on an aspect of attachment information or research and also sponsor various attachment focused trainings as they arise). Our website is really who we are, and we intend it to be a good first click towards finding solid information on attachment, whether it is other websites, resources, videos, memes, thought provoking pieces, articles etc. We have also developed materials primarily geared towards parents such as our 10 Things Series of brochures and posters. The brochures are available in English, French, Spanish, Tagalog, Cree, Ojibwe, and Arabic. The series are available for free downloading or purchased after printing from our site at www.attachmentnetwork.ca. 10 Things Your (Baby, Toddler, School Aged Child and Teenager, and coming shortly, Foster Child) Want You to Know.
