This year, the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) has decided to make “suicide prevention” the main theme of World Mental Health Day. Statistics are stark, every 40 seconds someone loses their life to suicide.
World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of mental health issues and advocate against social stigma.
If you or someone you know needs help, call the Samaritans for free anytime on 116 123. If you would like to help raise suicide awareness visit https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/world-mental-health-day
