Self-Injury Awareness Day 2017

Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) occurs on 1st March every year, and has done so for well over a decade.

Raising awareness about self-injury is incredibly important. Awareness leads to understanding and empathy, helping to banish judgment and fear, and to reduce the number of people who feel alone and suffer in silence.

World Suicide Prevention Day

Posted on September 9, 2016

Saturday 10th September is World Suicide Prevention Day.

In the UK suicide is the leading cause of death for young people, both male and female. Every year around 1,600 children and young people aged 10 to 34 take their own lives.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year – that’s one person every 40 seconds. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. This means that there are many, many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has tried to take his or her own life.

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Watch a video and share to Facebook & Twitter.

'Connect, communicate, care’ is the theme of the 2016 World Suicide Prevention Day on Saturday 10th September, organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention.
