World Suicide Prevention Day: Working Together to Save Lives in the Community

Raising community awareness about suicidal distress and suicide is one of Valoris for Children and Adults of Prescott-Russell’s objectives.

The World Suicide Prevention Day will take place on September 10. It is an opportunity to inform the population of the importance of seeking help or supporting a loved one if they are showing signs of suicidal distress.

The Signs

It is helpful to recognize some of the signs of suicidal distress so that you can take action quickly. These signs may include fatigue, discouragement, isolation, verbalizing the act, threats to end one's life, writing songs or letters about suicide, changes in appearance, aggressiveness or reckless actions. The majority of people who take their own lives announce their intentions to others, and these acts are often planned and calculated.
