World Suicide Prevention Day

Every year on 10 September, organisations and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of suicide. Our aim is to increase the understanding of suicide and help you explore ways that you can respond to someone who feels that they no longer want to live.

We have created a range of content around suicide awareness which is free to access by anyone during 7-14 September. You can view these articles and much more at myrtwellbeing.org.uk/suicide-awareness

We will be sharing relevant content throughout the week across our social media channels so please give our pages a follow on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Pinterest!

We would be grateful if you could get involved too and raise awareness of suicide prevention within your organisations by sharing our social post. We have even created some digital resources which you can use to help raise awareness across your own digital platforms.

It will be great to use throughout the week to create further awareness across your organisation and remind colleagues of retailTRUST services and myrtwellbeing.org.uk and how we can support them.

retailTRUST believes that the health of all our colleagues is a foundation of the ongoing success of British retail. Since 1832 and now for almost two centuries they have been at the heart of how the retail industry cares for, protects, and improves the lives of its most valuable asset – its people.

Today, the Trust helps retailers care for the most vulnerable in our sector via access to career-changing learning and development; financial, emotional, and physical wellbeing services and supported-living estates.

You can access personalised wellbeing support at myrtwellbeing.org.uk

Remember retailTRUST offers a wide range of support and guidance on managing your wellbeing. During the week of World Suicide Prevention Day please access the suicide awareness content to help raise awareness and increase your understanding of suicide.

Some of the content includes:

The free and confidential retailTRUST helpline is also available 24 hours a day to support colleagues through this difficult time. You can contact the dedicated and friendly team on 0808 801 0808 or by emailing [email protected]
