The Choose Life ‘Working Together to Prevent Suicide’ campaign asks everyone to be alert to the warning signs of suicide in people close to them. If you’re worried about someone, such as a friend, family member or workmate, asking them directly about their feelings can help to save their life.
Signs of suicide can be difficult to spot which is why the campaign encourages people to take all signs of distress seriously, even if it seems a person is living a normal life. Asking a person about what’s troubling them can make a positive difference.
Materials have been distributed to venues and organisations throughout Fife to support the national campaign. If you would like to find out more about the campaign visit their website.
