World Suicide Prevention Day 2021

10 September is World Suicide Prevention Day, and to mark this day and to raise awareness of the measures we can all take to prevent suicides, the Psychosocial Centre has compiled a package or resources about suicide prevention.

When we think about suicide prevention, it is really important to keep this word 'prevention' at heart. There are many things we can do to build resilience and develop internal and external supports in people’s lives. This will hopefully prevent more attempts or more suicides from occurring.

There is no one-size-fits-all formula for those who are at risk. It is really important that suicide prevention efforts are geared towards creating an environment where a person feels safe and comfortable and that any stigma is reduced as much as possible so that what could be a risk factor on an individual level can be explored in a safe way.
