Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness Month
Next week marks the start of Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness month across the Western Isles, which will run from World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th September to World Mental Health Day on the 10th October. This month will be used as an opportunity to acknowledge that this work is everyone’s business. The emotional impact on families, friends and communities bereaved by a sudden loss is devastating and can have long lasting negative effects on those left behind. We know that our communities have experienced a number of sudden losses over the past 18 months in various different ways. When communities experience a traumatic loss, it can affect people in lots of different ways.
As part of a number of activities planned for this month we will be holding a ‘Leave the light on service’ for those who have been lost or those who have experienced a loss, not just by suicide. This service will be on Friday 28th September at 7pm in the High Church in Stornoway. There will be tea and coffee and an opportunity to talk after the event. This event is open to everyone and we warmly invite all to attend.
“There is no surer evidence of an unconverted state, than to have the things of the world uppermost in our aim, love and estimation.”
