Commemorating those we have lost through suicide, saving lives and building resilience within our community

World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day, 10th September, 2018, aims to encourage people to educate themselves and others about preventing suicide; to take action to reduce the suicide incidences by promoting prevention strategies; and to ensure that people at risk of suicide can be reached out to by the community, free from stigma.

Through the sale and distribution of yellow ribbons throughout the year the people can show their support and commitment to start to end suicide.

Volunteers needed!

We will be making yellow ribbon ceramic pins to raise awareness of suicide prevention...and we need your help!

Don't worry if you have never thrown clay before we will teach you everything you need to know. 

Come along and help us with this great cause:

1.00pm-3.00pm, Fridays (from 2nd February, 2018)
At Start, Brunswick House, 62 Broad Street, Salford, M6 5BZ

Losing a loved one to suicide is different than losing a loved one as the result of a disease or a tragic accident. With suicide the person has actually chosen death.
