‘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.
This World Suicide Prevention Day we’d like to take a minute to change lives with as many suicide prevention awareness raising events as possible being held in Australia on or around World Suicide Prevention Day.
