If you or someone you know is in danger of suicide, please seek help immediately. You should:

  • Call 999;
  • Call Lifeline on 0808 808 8000;
  • Use your local emergency department.

Don’t try to manage your or someone else’s suicidal thoughts on your own. Remember, thoughts about suicide are just that – thoughts. They won’t last forever and often they pass quickly. Many people who have had serious thoughts about suicide have said that they feel completely different only hours later.

Songs for Hope 2022

As part of this year’s HSC Regional Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing campaign, marking World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September and World Mental Health Day 10 October, people are being encouraged to send an example of a song they like to play that inspires them, that makes them feel happier and hopeful.

We will compile the growing list of Songs for Hope playlist on this page over the five week campaign period.

The aim is, that the playlist will inspire others when they are seeking ideas for songs and music that can help them feel more hopeful and happier.

More campaign information and a link to send your song idea, will follow soon.

Watch this space!
