World Suicide Prevention
September is Suicide Prevention Month when countries worldwide raise awareness of suicide
prevention and mental health.
Since 2018, Gibraltar’s community has rallied
behind GibSams each September to support the charity’s outreach events throughout the month, spread awareness of GibSams listening services and get the community talking about their mental health.
GibSams’ theme for their awareness campaign this year is ‘Break the Silence’. They hope to highlight the importance of opening up and sharing thoughts, feelings and struggles with others.
