Monthly focus - Suicide Awareness
Our monthly focus this month is suicide to coinside with World suicide prevention day.
Below is a little bit about the day,
What is World Suicide Prevention Day?
Each year businesses and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
The aim is to bring to light a specific aspect of suicide prevention.
Why is it important?
The latest suicides statistics showed that in 2018, in the UK and Republic of Ireland, more than 6,800 people died by suicide. Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy.
This works out on average that 130 people every week take their own lives and we know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable.
But for many in society not being okay is still widely stigmatised and this is not okay.. It's Okay to feel rubbish, pained and hurt but suicide should not be an option.
Suicide is very close to our heart and we want to do everything we can to stop people seeing this as an option.
The clothing have been designed to show that you are not alone, IT'S OKAY BE YOU and that your story is far from over.
