Why this matters

Many of us have been affected by suicide in some way – whether it is ourselves, a loved one, or someone we know. Suicide is of concern to all of us. It is a leading cause of death among young people and men are three times more likely to take their own lives compared to women. Yet we still find it difficult to talk about suicide. Now is the moment for change.

United to Prevent Suicide is for anyone who is passionate about this issue and building the most supportive country in the world. Sign up today.

A 30 second film has been co-produced with people of lived experience and has featured across TV, video on demand and digital channels.

Focused on the difficulty of saying the word, suicide, the powerful and authentic words in the film are from real experiences and voiced by the very people who told us their story.
