In conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day, we will be organizing "Spark the Change Fest 2022" on 3 September 2022, held in Sentosa where we will be holding our first physical 3KM #HowRU
Walkathon and Music fest, aimed at encouraging more people in the community to come together and take on a more active role to support individuals who may be in distress, beyond creating conversations around mental health.

We truly believe that music can heal and connect people together. As such, this aims to be a testament that no one has to feel alone in their journey as we hope to work towards a more inclusive society.

For the first time ever, we are working closely with a group of students across all 6 local universities to form an organizing committee where they will support us in creating awareness for youths to spark the change surrounding mental health and suicide prevention.

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

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 globally, 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.
