World Suicide Prevention Day 2021


Dear Members


Join us at Survivors of Suicide for World Suicide Prevention Day!


Did you know.......?


An estimated 703,000 people die by suicide worldwide each year.


The global suicide rate is over twice as high among men than women.


Suicide rates in the United States have increased about 33% from 1999 to 2019.


In 2019, 12 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.5 million made a plan, and 1.4 million attempted suicide.

Here at SOS we would like to break the stigma of suicide and help raise awareness of Mental Health as a whole.


Please Join us throughout the month of September and take part in our Sim-Wide activities:


✧ SOS HUNT - Come along and explore our sim by searching out objects and prizes (1st - 30th September) **Please wear your SOS Group Tag**

✧ SIM CYCLE - Grab yourself a bike from our Rezzer at the front of the sim and pedal our circuit for World Suicide Prevention Day. Will you compete for a spot at the top of our leader board for number of laps? (10th September)

✧ CAMPING / SLEEP-OVER - Come along and show your support at our very own SOS Camping / Sleep-Over Weekend located at our camping area. Get comfy around the campfire, eat smores and tell stories. (11th September @ 12pm SLT)

We hope to see you then!!
