About Campaign

Suicide is often preventable. For those at risk, talking about it is an important first step to recovery.

For World Suicide Prevention Day 2016, SOS put in motion a movement to get more people talking about the issue, and asking for the help they need. Unique SOS-designed plasters with the words #howru printed on it were created and distributed online and on the ground. Members of public were encouraged to play their part towards suicide prevention by acquiring a plaster and pledging their support.

If you have heard about or seen the campaign, that's awesome!

If you supported the cause in any way, thank you for the love!

If you didn't manage to do either, here's another chance for you to play your part in suicide prevention.

Donate and your contributions will go towards World Suicide Prevention Day 2017.

Elevators, trains, offices, schools; we want #howru to reach as many people as possible because we believe suicide prevention is everybody's business.

About the Charity

On average in Singapore, more than 408 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2015 to 2020: 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.
