‘What Remains’ – Film Screening as Part of World Suicide Prevention Day

Posted on Updated on

 

Screened as part of World Suicide Prevention Day on Monday 10 September, 4:30pm at Square Chapel Arts Centre there will be a FREE film screening of ‘What Remains’.

After the death of her husband by suicide Gillian Brooks tried to make sense of the events and preserve memories for her children. So she wrote it down as a story. Now her words have inspired a film made by Gillian and her family with the help of filmmaker Geoff Brokate.

What is World Suicide Prevention day?
World Suicide Prevention Day is held each year on 10 September. It’s an annual awareness raising event organised by International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The 2017 theme was about connecting with others and letting people know that #ITSOKAYTOTALK.

Why is it important?
More than 800,000 people take their lives each year across the world. In the UK and ROI, more than 6,000 people die by suicide a year – an average of 18 a day.

Reaching out to people who are going through a difficult time can be a game changer. People who are feeling low or suicidal often feel worthless and think that no-one cares. Small things like hearing from friends or family, feeling listened to or just being told that ‘it’s ok to talk’ can make a huge difference.

What you can do
Start a conversation today if you think a friend, colleague or family member may be struggling. When a person reaches a point where they are focused on taking their life, they’ve often lost sight of trying to find a way through their problems. This period usually only lasts a short while and often it doesn’t take a huge amount to bring someone back from that decision – something as simple as saying, ‘it’s ok to talk’ can be enough to move someone out of suicidal crisis.

How can people reach out?
It can be daunting to approach someone who is struggling to cope; you may not know what to say, how to start a difficult conversation or worry that you’ll make things worse. However, you don’t need to be an expert. Often, just asking if someone’s OK and letting them know you’re listening can give people the confidence to open up about how they’re feeling.

Tickets are FREE but places are limited so please book in advance on the Square Chapel Arts Centre website.

With thanks to Calderdale Council and Verd De Gris.
