- Up to 1 in 20 of the Scottish Population will think about suicide at any given time
- Around 3 in 4 completed suicides are in males
- Almost half of all completed suicides are by people aged 35-54
Every year in September a wide community of people across the world take time to raise awareness and consider the impact of suicide in our communities.
In North Ayrshire partners across all agencies work together to prevent suicide and support those at risk or affected by suicide.
Choose Life is the National Programme taking the campaign forward and highlight this devastating and tragic issue.
Choose Life in North Ayrshire ask you to take the time to talk to your friends, families and work mates and find out how they really are.
