Suicide Prevention Day 10 September

Each year the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) marks 10th of September as World Suicide Prevention Day. This is an opportunity for communities to come together to raise awareness of suicide prevention, tackle the stigma that prevents people from seeking help when in distress, and support and signpost people in need to sources of support.

Our idea this year, is to again link in with a range of football clubs across our county. As per the last few years we are linking with Derby County FC and Chesterfield FC, and building on last year’s events at 3 non-league teams from across Derbyshire (Alfreton Town, Belper Town and Sheffield FC).

Between Saturday 31st August and Saturday 14th September there will be a series of events.

Games at Alfreton (3pm 7th Sept), Derby County (7:45pm 13th Sept), Chesterfield (3pm 14th Sept) and Sheffield FC (3pm 14th Sept at Dronfield) have been confirmed.

We are also awaiting confirmation of other possible non-league matches in Belper, Glossop, Gresley, Matlock and Shirebrook.

The opportunity to sign up to volunteer at one of these matches will be widely circulated in mid-August.

For now please save the date(s) if you are interested.
