World Suicide Prevention Day


spaSaturday 10th September 2011 marks the World Suicide Prevention Day.

Nearly all suicides are preventable. This World Suicide Prevention Day, take the time to learn about suicide, recognise the signs and help to reduce the stigma associated with help-seeking – you may save a life one day.

This would be a good week to:

  • Ask your friends how they’re doing
  • Talk about problems
  • Encourage friends to talk to others too
  • Offer to join a friend in an activity they usually like
  • Show others you care
