LIVE: Suicide Prevention Campaign

LIVE: Suicide Prevention Campaign

An annual suicide prevention campaign which aims to disseminate information to the public on recognizing risk factors and warning signs of suicide, knowing how to offer initial support and knowing where to refer for professional help.

September 2018 – A series of informative videos were created with the support of international professionals in the field. 

September 2017 – On the 10th of September 2017, CAFS together with THEME Institute commemorated World Suicide Prevention Day with a walk from Diyatha Uyana to the Amphitheatre at Viharamahadevi Park. We then joined the rest of the world in lighting a candle at 8pm in remembrance of those who lost their lives to suicide as well as those who struggle with the thought of it. This was followed by a tribute concert ‘Somewhere I belong’ to late Chester Benington of Linkin Park who recently lost his life to suicide.  This event gathered large crowds of youth where it was possible to spread awareness.
