World Suicide Prevention Day 2020

We know that conversations look different in 2020. They happen over FaceTime, Zoom or Teams. When we do get the chance to meet in person, they happen from a distance as we talk through masks. We know that connection is vital, especially when it comes to mental health and suicide prevention. Quite simply, we know that people need other people.

Suicide prevention starts with recognising the warning signs and taking them seriously. You might feel alone, but there are people and organisations who want to help you during this difficult time.

If you believe you know someone who is demonstrating suicidal feelings, you can play an essential role in prevention by demonstrating compassion, listening to them and safely guiding them to a professional.

You can also contact one of the organisations on the Every Mind Matters website to seek support right away.
