World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September each year provides an opportunity to raise awareness of suicide prevention.

This day can help everyone to shine a light on suicide prevention and spread this important message. Working together to prevent suicide is critical and the support of everyone is needed to make a difference in raising awareness and encouraging conversations.

World Suicide Prevention Day is organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP).

At this time let us pray:

For all families and communities who have lost someone to suicide and who live forever with that loss and grief.

May the love of God which is stronger than despair and death and which binds us as one in life, strengthen our spirits with compassion and hope, now and forever. Amen.
