World Suicide Prevention day 2023

The Neuk holds an annual event in St Pauls Square to raise awareness that we are here and we can support people in distress.

We started of our campaign with our video

Annual Event in St Pauls Square 2023

Our annual event to raise awareness that we really can prevent death by suicide. Here is Wendy’s Daughter and her friends dog Wallace who came to help us, they proved to be a ‘secret weapon’ and people couldn’t help but stop and talk to ‘them’. A great day and we reached over 200 people and handed out lots of information on the Neuk. Thanks to everyone who stopped and spoke to us.

This year in addition to this event we ran a week of social media posts, running every day for a week from 10/09/23 to 17/10/23 to reach as many people as we can
