Shining a light on suicide prevention

Did you realise… In the United Kingdom and Ireland, two construction workers commit suicide every working day. In honour of today’s World Suicide Prevention day, if you notice someone whom you believe is suffering from mental illness, please don’t ignore them; instead, talk to them.

According to the International Association for Suicide Prevention, the theme for World Suicide Day 2021 is ‘creating hope through action.’

This year, our advice is simple: ”we want you to create hope by learning more about how you may help someone in your life who is having suicidal thoughts or is at risk of suicide

Sometimes just listening is all that is required. It’s okay to not be okay. You are not alone. Help and assistance are always available! We are grateful that du Boulay contracts support each and every one of our company’s employees.
