Suicide is preventable, small actions can make a big difference and save lives
Samaritans believe every life lost to suicide is a tragedy. We know that suicide is preventable and that small actions can make a big difference and save lives.
But not being okay is still widely stigmatised. Every year on World Suicide Prevention Day, 10th September, we campaign along with other organisations and communities around the world, to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide. This year the focus is on staying connected.
To stay connected with our community on this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day, the Stockport and District Branch are helping to raise awareness of our service. Our campaign includes Stockport Town Hall being lit up in green on the day itself. Then across September and October, there’ll be a whole host of events and publicity, including local radio coverage, talks to organisations, Samaritans billboards across Stockport and at the railway station. There will also be 40 buses travelling across the Stockport and Wythenshawe areas displaying our Samaritans awareness raising banners.
You can get in touch with the Samaritans about anything that’s troubling you, no matter how large or small the issue feels. We're here 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Anyone can contact Samaritans for free any time from any phone, even a mobile without credit. Call us on 116 123 or email [email protected]
