About Campaignends 30 Nov 2016, 11:59 PM
Sometimes, it becomes the only question that is asked.
"Why didn't he tell me?..."
"Why did he choose to go?..."
Yet the answers to these questions are elusive. More than just having experienced a loss, suicide survivors are very much at a loss themselves.
They experience denial, anger, regret, shame, guilt, intense emotional pain; sometimes all at once.
And that's only the start of what is sometimes a life-long journey of learning to cope woth a bereavement that is complex, drastic, and above all, life-changing.
In the last three years, the SOS LOSS programme has attended to approximately 800 suicide survivors, and initiated over 3900 calls and emails as follow up or to provide emotional support. YOur donations help keep this programme going, and enables us to continue this crucial aspect of our work.
We don't try to come up with answers; instead, we are there for these bereaved loved ones on their journey in finding hope and healing.
About the Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 400 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2014 to 2018: that's about 1-2 suicides every day. According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it. Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention. We set out to be an Available Lifeline to Anyone in Crisis as we aim to be the Premiere Organisation in Suicide Prevention in Singapore. To find out more, visit www.sos.org.sg.
