Suicide prevention events in Blackburn and Darwen
11:19am Monday 9th September 2013 in News
TWO events supporting World Suicide Prevention Day will be hosted by Blackburn with Darwen Council this week.
The day, sponsored by the International Association for Suicide Prevention and the World Health Organisation, aims to raise awareness of suicide, its prevention, and to reduce stigma.
Two free sessions for the public have been arranged and the first, ‘SuicideTALK’, is tomorrow from 6pm to 8pm at Pleckgate High School to increase awareness of suicide prevention. On Friday, ‘SafeTALK’ at Darwen Resource Centre from 9.15am to 12.45pm, will prepare 15-and-overs to identify people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with help.
