TELL Japan

‘Take a minute, change a life’ this World Suicide Prevention Day

Published on September 1, 2016

TELL is organizing suicide prevention and awareness walks all across Japan to mark World Suicide Prevention Day this September.

The Talkie Walkie events, which will take place in Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, Osaka, and other cities, offer an opportunity for people to get together to support those who have been affected by mental illness, those who have experienced mental illness, and those who have lost someone to suicide.
This sentiment is reflected in the theme of the 2017 World Suicide Prevention Day: ‘Take a minute, change a life.’ As members of communities, it is our responsibility to look out for those who may be struggling, check in with them, and encourage them to tell their story in their own way and at their own pace. Offering a gentle word of support and listening in a non-judgemental way can make all the difference.
