Suicide Prevention Pledge

Suicide has been declared a national emergency in Wales, with Powys having the highest suicide rates in the country. We have developed a pledge which we hope will encourage people to talk to one another about their problems and raise awareness.

Story

In Wales 360 people took their own life in 2017. 77% of these were men. Men in rural communities, just like our own, are the most at risk from suicide. It is the biggest single cause of death in men under 40, even greater than road traffic accidents or cancer.

Suicide rates in Powys are amongst the highest in the country. (Brecon & Radnor express)

Talking about suicide can seem scary and some people can feel if they mention suicide it can put the thought in someones head. There is NO evidence of this and in fact talking about it actually helps and is one of the easiest ways to prevent suicide.

We need to make a change. We need to say its okay to feel sad. Its okay to cry. Its okay to not be okay.

We understand it can be daunting to talk to professionals, so the pledge is designed to make it easier to talk to friends and family, as well as to know where to encourage people to get help from.

Sometimes all thats needed is for someone to listen.
