WHO (world health organisation) estimates that 1 person every 40 seconds take their life.
Just let that sink in for a moment…
We ALL have a role to play in working together to prevent suicide.
Be mindful, be aware and understand.
What can we as a community do to support the prevention of more people dying in this way that is going to make a true impact?
Here’s just a few we could think of:
- Check-in with people, even if it's just a quick call
- Volunteer to crisis lines (https://www.samaritans.org/support-us/volunteer/)
- Be aware of the signs (https://save.org/about-suicide/warning-signs-risk-factors-protective-factors/)
No-one should ever feel alone or as if taking their life is the only option.
