Suicide Prevent
5th Jul

World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day is always on 10th September every year. 

Every year, organisations and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.

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.

And we know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable.

But not being OK is still widely stigmatised. And governments can still make better, more ambitious plans to prevent suicide.

Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Blood Cancer Awareness Month is held every September to raise the profile of blood cancer, which doesn't get the attention of other cancers. Every year, our blood cancer community comes together to raise awareness.
