Events Around World Suicide Prevention Day 2018

World Suicide Prevention Day takes place on Monday 10 September. Calderdale Suicide Prevention Group aims to have a Calderdale wide approach to suicide prevention. The work over the past 12 months clearly fits with the global theme set by International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP).
In Calderdale this will be the 2nd WSPD campaign and following the successful campaign last year it is intended to replicate the approach.

The Calderdale approach is to wear an item of clothing ‘Inside Out’.

Inside out encourages people to talk – never underestimate the power of a conversation, you have the power to save a life. There is always a way.

There are a number of resources that you can download to help to raise awareness and learn more about how you can make a difference with a half day training course on Friday 5 October, 10:00am-1:30pm at Halifax Fire Station.
