Suicide awareness / campaign

The WHO estimates that over 800,000 people take their own life each year. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. This means that there are many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has tried to take his or her own life.

On World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September we’ll be raising awareness of support around this time, to help reach as many people as possible. You can join in too.

No matter how dark it may seem, how hopeless and lost you feel, there will always be someone who can help, so reach out, tell someone and never feel alone.

Suicide awareness / campaign

The WHO estimates that over 800,000 people take their own life each year. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. This means that there are many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has tried to take his or her own life.

On World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September we’ll be raising awareness of support around this time, to help reach as many people as possible. You can join in too.

No matter how dark it may seem, how hopeless and lost you feel, there will always be someone who can help, so reach out, tell someone and never feel alone.

Out & about in Stanley town centre
