Each year on 10 September various organisations come together to raise awareness of issues surrounding suicide and work towards a world where fewer people reach the point of taking their own life. This year the theme is ‘Hope’.​

World Suicide Prevention DayThe Samaritans have pulled together some ideas for how to create hope in your life. These include a gratitude journal, going for a walk with a friend and taking time to pause and reflect. Check out these suggestions in their article here >

BACP members reflect on what Hope means for them as they work with clients in the counselling room. Check out some videos here >

Take some time to pause and reflect…

What creates hope in your life?
How do you find hope when you are struggling?

And as always, remember Rainbow counsellors are here to help if you or a loved one are battling thoughts of suicide.
