Singapore reported a total of 476 suicides last year, revealing a concerning rise of 25.9% from 378 in 2021, and the highest recorded suicide deaths since 2000. This equates to more than one suicide death per day.

In conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day, we will be organizing our annual Spark the Change Fest 2023 on 2 September 2023, held at OCBC Square @ Singapore Sports Hub. We will be kicking off with our physical 3km #HowRU Charity Walk , complete with a line-up of activities including a physical 3km #HowRU Charity Walk as well as fringe activities and exhibitions on mental health and suicide prevention.

While SOS continues to provide our programmes and services for those in distress, we can't do it alone. With discussions about mental health and suicide prevention becoming more prevalent, now is the time for us play a part in suicide prevention and Spark the Change together. Join us to fundraise for those in need.

Every dollar contributed to our cause allows use to have a tangible impact on individuals in distress. Whether it is towards the enhancement and expansion of our services and infrastructure or even ensuring that our services continue to remain free for those who need it, your contributions directly helps SOS in our cause of suicide prevention, crisis intervention and post vention efforts.

Let's unite for those who have been thinking about or affected by suicide and help work towards a zero suicide society.

From 2016 to 2021, an average of 402 lives were lost to suicide in Singapore annually. This equates to more than one suicide death per day. With discussions surrounding mental health and suicide prevention more prevalent than ever, now is the time for us to make a change together.

With a 17.4% increase in the number of hotline calls answered and a 120% increase in the number of CareText messages replied, your donations will be important in helping SOS to match the rising demand for support amongst at-risk individuals across Singapore.

A donation of $1,000 can help SOS train our volunteers to take up 190 hotline calls, 290 CareText chats, or further support our CareMail platform or counselling sessions. Beyond enhancing our programmes and services, your donations will also allow us to continue providing our resources free of charge to those who need it most.

All funds donated will be dedicated towards SOS' enhancement and expansion of services and infrastructure. SOS also reserves all rights to pledge funds toward our Signature events.
