The Choose Life ‘Working Together to Prevent Suicide’ campaign asks everyone to be alert to the warning signs of suicide in people close to them.
Suicide Prevention Week takes place this year from 9th – 13th of September incorporating World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September.
If you’re worried about someone, such as a friend, family member or workmate, asking them directly about their feelings can help to save their life.
Signs of suicide can be difficult to spot which is why the campaign encourages people to take all signs of distress seriously, even if it seems a person is living a normal life.
Asking a person about what’s troubling them can make a positive difference.
As members of the wider public we all need to be informed about mental health and wellbeing.
