World Suicide Prevention Day – Monday 10th September.
Suicide holds a lot of stigma. People don’t like talking about it. I talk here about the feelings that go behind suicide and my own personal experiences in the aim of suicide awareness.
A simple message can save a life.
I am proof of this. Talk. Reach Out. End The Stigma.
Please take 10 minutes to watch this, to understand why suicide isn’t “a cowards way out”, it’s not “attention seeking” and why something as simple as a message really can save someone’s life.
Never forget the importance of allowing someone to talk to you. For letting them know you are there.
Remember to send a message, a text, pop round, ask how they are feeling. Don’t be scared to ask. Suicide lives in silence. Most will be glad you asked, glad you care enough to have taken that time to ask about them.
It really can be the smallest of things that make a big difference. sometimes all it takes is a message.
