The Say the 'S' Word Campaign focuses on the reluctance of many adults, and some young people, to discuss suicide or even mentioned the dreaded 'S' word.
It is vital to realise that TALKING ABOUT SUICIDE DOESN'T MAKE IT HAPPEN!
So we have commissioned a comic strip to stimulate discussion and engage adults and young people in being open to talking about 'S'uicide.
Young people need to know and understand that they can turn to their parents or other trusted adult in their life and talk about the issues facing them without fear of rejection or reluctance to discuss a particular subject. Often this process can begin by taking a simple step like saying the 'S' word: Suicide.
