This year 's World Suicide Prevention Day theme is 'Creating Hope Through Action'
World Suicide Prevention Day is for raising awareness of suicide and promoting action that helps save lives.
Our partner provider Grassroots is holding an online panel discussion on 9th September and you can be part of it...
"This year we celebrate the theme Creating Hope Through Action. No matter how big or small, our actions can provide hope to those who are struggling. We can all be there for people who are experiencing a suicidal crisis or have lost a loved one to suicide.
