SAMH are tackling suicide rates for Christmas


Two people in Scotland die by suicide every day.  These two people could be people members of your family, your friends, someone you work with or someone you saw on the bus this morning. 

This year for Christmas, SAMH are asking that you donate and make your Secret Santa not so secret. 

The aim is to break the stigma around talking about suicide – forget secrets and open up to those around you. 

The charity operate over 60 services across Scotland, including mental health support and homelessness, addictions and employment services.   

Your donation will help SAMH listen to those in need, starting a life-changing conversation. 

As well as the option to make a one off donation, they also offer the chance to make a regular donation throughout the year. 

You can read more about those the charity helped and make a donation here. 

If you are concerned about a loved one, affected by any issues in this article or are looking for additional help and support, visit the SAMH website.
