World Suicide Prevention Day is a global event occurring every year on the 10th September and it aims to provide worldwide commitments and actions to prevent suicides.

Every year in Lambeth, 17 people take their own lives and each of these deaths affects many more people who have known and loved them.
The council are  committed to preventing suicides in Lambeth and ensure that nobody takes their own life in the borough. And we can all help to do so.
If you are struggling with your mental health or experiencing suicidal thoughts, know that you don’t have to struggle alone: there is help at hand.
Try and speak with a close family member or friend, as they might be able help you feel calmer and find some breathing space.
If you can’t think of anyone, or would rather not talk to your loved ones, there are people and supportive services that will listen and help you through this time in your life.
