every life matters

Today, Friday, 10 September, is World Suicide Prevention Day. One in every 100 deaths worldwide is the result of suicide and it can affect every one of us.  This annual event is a reminder that there is an alternative to suicide and aims to inspire confidence in all of us that our actions, however big or small, may provide hope to those who are struggling.

Every Life Matters is a Cumbrian suicide prevention and support charity, who aim to reduce the stigma attached to suicide, increase understanding of when someone is at risk, and raise awareness of how to practically support someone.

The Every Life Matter website provides a range of training opportunities and information which you may find helpful, including free online training which is taking place on 10 September. For more information go to www.every-life-matters.org.uk
