​September is suicide prevention awareness month

September is suicide prevention awareness month.

Locally, GibSams, along with other mental health charities, are hosting an awareness day Thursday morning at the Piazza.

A busy period for the charity - they have also launched this year's Wellbeing at Work place award scheme recognising companies that have successfully implemented changes to the benefit of their employees.

Sticking with the Well being at work theme - GibSams has created a series of podcasts based on the theme, and what it entails. They will be available on all streaming platforms, as well as on the GibSams website

The charity are also looking for volunteers to man their phonelines, hoping to extend the time they are available to those in need. A selection day is planned for the first of October.

You can find out more details on everything mentioned during this report on their website gibsams.gi
