What is World Suicide Prevention Day?
Every year Oxfordshire Mind joins charities, organisations and communities around the world in coming together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
When is it?
World Suicide Prevention Suicide Day is on the 10th September.
Why is it important?
In 2018, in the UK and Republic of Ireland, more than 6,800 people died of suicide. Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy.
And we know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable.
If you’re feeling like you want to die, it’s important to tell someone.
Help and support is available right now if you need it. You do not have to struggle with difficult feelings alone.
