World Suicide Prevention Day, 10th September, 2023

An estimated 703,000 people a year take their life around the world. To prevent suicide requires us to become a beacon of light to those in pain. You can #BeTheLight.

At 8PM on #WSPD, join us in lighting a candle near a window at 8pm to show your support for suicide prevention, to remember a loved one and for the survivors of suicide.

This #WorldSuicidePreventionDay you can #BeTheLight by encouraging understanding, reaching in and sharing your experiences.

Suicide can affect every one of us. By raising awareness, reducing the stigma & encouraging action we can help to reduce the instances of suicide around the world.
