World Suicide Prevention Day - support and learning

8 September 2023

World Suicide Prevention Day is hosted on 10 September each year by the International Association for Suicide Prevention and this year's theme is ‘Creating Hope Through Action.’

A great action that anyone can do is to take 20 minutes to complete the Zero Suicide Alliance training. Anyone can learn to have a lifesaving conversation and this short training aims to give you the skills and confidence to help someone who may be considering suicide.

Sadly thousands of people in the UK take their own lives each year. By raising awareness, reducing the stigma, and encouraging action, we can work together towards reducing the instances of suicide locally.

Ahead of World Suicide Prevention Day, the Joined Up Care Derbyshire wellbeing team are highlighting the wealth of support available throughout September to support colleagues who may be struggling with their mental health.
