Cycle Around the Globe for World Suicide Prevention Day
13 Aug 18 - 12 Aug 19
Spot the Signs along with partnership organisations are commemorating the 16th World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September by requesting people in Hertfordshire to dedicate their cycle ride miles between 1-17 September to suicide prevention.
People are encouraged to Sign up, Cycle and Send the miles that they have ridden into Spot the Signs to see how far Hertfordshire can cycle using the hashtag #HertsWSPD18. These will all be added up and sent to the international Cycle Around the Globe page.
This awareness raising campaign is free to enter and aims to prevent suicides by inviting people to talk about the importance of mental health and suicide prevention. Prizes are up for grabs for the people that cycle the furthest during the campaign and anyone is able to get involved.
Emma Paisley, Senior Project Coordinator of Spot the Signs and Save a Life campaign said:
“Communities have an important role to play in supporting those who are vulnerable. World Suicide Prevention Day is an invaluable opportunity to highlight the importance of mental health.
"Spot the Signs and Save a Life is Hertfordshire's suicide prevention campaign and our vision is to make Hertfordshire a county where no one ever gets to a point where they feel suicide is their only option.”
