World Suicide Prevention Day – September 10

Posted on September 10th, 2018

The impact of suicide stays with your loved ones forever…

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10). This year we’re showing the other side to the story – those people left behind.

For many people considering suicide, a common thought is that they will be doing their loved ones a favour. We’ve created a video that shows the true impact of suicide on those people left behind.

The people filmed have all lost a loved one to suicide. They’ve lost parents, siblings, friends and children ranging from mere months ago to years ago. This video explores the true impact – that their lives will never be the same and that they never feel relieved, as the suicided person thought.

The intention of this video is to expose the devastating impact of suicide to those closest to them. By doing so, we hope to get people to reconsider. To open a conversation with someone they love and to get help. One conversation can save a
life.
