Today is World Suicide Prevention Day.

World Suicide Prevention Day aims to start the conversation about suicide and to show that recovery is possible. While there has been a reduction in the number of people completing suicide over the last ten years, the numbers are still worryingly high. 

International Association for Suicide Prevention and @take5tosavelives encourages everyone to take 5 minutes out of their day and complete five action items:

1. Learn the warning signs

2. Do your part

3. Practise self-care

4. Reach out

5. Spread the word

World Suicide Prevention day is hosted by #IASP – for more information, please visit:
