Today marks World Suicide Prevention Day.
It also marks the launch of our #SOScampaign.
We’d love you to get involved and you can do this in a number of ways.
1) Get tweeting! Use the has tags #wspd14 and #SOScampaign to join the conversation.
2) Get speaking! Let’s stop speaking about suicide as if it were a crime – instead of committing suicide – use phrases like “died by suicide” or “took their own life”.
3) Get booking! Let us come to speak to your church or youth group about suicide in a way that isn’t scary or depressing – but in a way which inspires hope. We’ll be looking at the scale of suicide, what the Bible has to say on suicide prevention in the life of Elijah and how we can bring hope to people when they are at their most hopeless. Head over to our resources page for more information.
Silence is suicides’ greatest ally.
So let’s break the silence.
