‘Take a Minute, Change a Life’ is the theme of the 2017 World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September). These three words are at the heart of suicide prevention and complement the efforts of our friends on R U OK? Day (14 September) to take time to notice what’s going on with your family, friends and colleagues – and yourself. It is about taking time to have have those conversation when you notice something has changed and equipping yourself to help yourself and others.
