FDYS, Youth Information, Coolcotts youth Project and CBDI will host an event in The Bullring Wexford, from 2- 4.30pm.This event will promote a message raising awareness around suicide and suicide prevention at a local level. The event is part of a number of worldwide activities being organised and will include a speaker from the community, FDYS Youth counsellor and various activities involving students from secondary schools in Wexford.
This year’s theme is, ‘Take a Minute Change a Life’, these words allow us to take time to notice what’s going on with our friends, families and colleagues. It’s about taking time to have those conversations when we notice something has changed and equipping ourselves to help and support others.
As members of communities, it is our responsibility to look out for those who may be struggling, check in with them, and encourage them to tell their story in their own way and at their own pace. Offering a gentle word of support and listening, in a non-judgemental way can make all the difference.
Everyone is welcome to come along and join us on the day.
