On April 12th at approximately 9:25 AM, 100 Mile House RCMP were notified from several concerned citizens that a Facebook post on an open 100 Mile House community support page had been made by a male in which he referenced self harm to himself. This male was quickly located by the local members at his residence where it was determined there were no grounds to apprehend the male under the Mental Health Act of BC at this time. The male was left under his own recognizance as a result.
The 100 Mile House RCMP wish to thank those members of the public that saw the post and called into Police. 100 Mile House RCMP are completing this media release to notify the public as to the findings of the investigation and that the male has been contacted.
If you know of an individual that is contemplating self-harm, please act to assist that person with obtaining support immediately by calling 911 or your local mental health unit.
