Creating Hope for World Suicide Prevention Day

23rd July 2021

The theme for World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September 2021, set by the International Association for Suicide Prevention, is Creating Hope Through Change.

The renewed message is one of hope, that aims to empower people with confidence to engage with this complex subject.

The focus of the North East and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network campaign for the day will be our communities, highlighting what resources are available to people and promoting our key messages:

• Look after yourself

• Look out for others

• Get help early

We are hosting a virtual event to amplify the campaign theme of positivity, recovery, and hope across the region and beyond.

Attendees will hear from people with lived experience of coping with mental distress, and recovery from suicidal ideation, self-harm, or attempted suicide sharing their “messages of hope” which may help other people who are struggling and maybe losing hope. We will also be raising awareness about some of the wide and varied range of support available to people across our region.

We hope the event will make a real difference for people who might be struggling with their mental health and wellbeing, and their friends and families, who are not sure where or how to find the right support.
