Support World Suicide Prevention Day

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Every 40 seconds a person chooses to take their own life. All life is precious and every suicide is preventable. The problem is as prevalent and relevant in Northern Ireland, where I live, but it also affects your community. Many of us feel powerless against suicide but we can do more, so much more, to help loved ones, friends, colleagues and complete strangers. Join us today by:

  • Improving awareness of suicide as a global mental health problem.
  • Improve your knowledge of what can be done to prevent suicide.
  • Reduce the stigma associated with suicide.
  • Help those struggling with suicidal thoughts know that they are not alone.

No age group is unaffected by suicide but it is the second leading cause of death amongst 15-29 year olds. You can make a difference, be it in a public or private capacity. I encourage you to take 40 seconds today to raise awareness of the issue. It can be a text, a conversation or a post on your social media accounts. This is an opportunity to show you care. But remember to respect the privacy of those who are struggling.

#Praise the Lord
