Suicide Prevention Week

By December 4, 2019 No Comments

Last September, on six electronic billboards in T&T, messages of hope were relayed to the persons struggling with suicidal thoughts in T&T.

It was World Suicide Prevention week (September 10, 2019 was World Suicide Prevention Day) and these billboards were graciously sponsored by Pearl and Dean for the entire week.

Messages rolled across the screens along Wrightson Road, Ferry terminal, Busy Corner, Chaguanas, the San Fernando bypass and at both the East and West bound lanes of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway at St Augustine, just outside the UWI south entrance.


To have mental health issues so prominently placed, we hope to reduce the stigma and that those to whom such messages would have made an impact, there was a feeling of solidarity and hope out there.
