This year ATFC alongside the National Suicide Prevention Alliance will be helping to raise awareness of actions individuals can take to help or support someone who is struggling, under the international theme of Working Together to Prevent Suicide.
The Reds home fixture against Curzon Ashton on Saturday 7th September will see volunteers (like last year) be on hand to chat to supporters in private and hand out resources about this delicate issue.
The areas for individual action that the NSPA will be highlighting are:
- Starting conversations
- Taking time to listen
- Creating supportive workplaces
- Helping people find support
- Supporting people bereaved by suicide
