Suicide Prevention Campaign - Lets Do Something!

- Northern Ireland
IT'S A MATTER OF LIFE & DEATH - YOUR LOVED ONES NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!
SUICIDE IS CAUSING MORE DEATHS IN NORTHERN IRELAND THAN SWINE FLU AND ROAD ACCIDENTS - SO WHERE IS THE SENSE OF URGENCY TO UNDERSTAND AND ELIMINATE THIS KILLER? WHERE ARE THE EMERGENCY PREVENTION STRATEGIES, SCHEMES & CAMPAIGNS? We see no education in schools, no information and training for parents, no TV campaigns to raise awareness and a minimum of funding for the voluntary sector who are trying to help....... The government is failing miserably in its duty to preserve and protect the lives of our loved ones.... WHY??
Author and community worker, Andrew Willoughby, project manager on a scheme funded by the Australian government - Project X - brought the suicide rate in an Australian town down to ZERO - Yes that's right - ZERO! and it took little more than 12 months to achieve!
Andrew Willoughby visited Derry City in January 2008 to pass on this knowledge, experience and findings. See the article about his visit here
Despite his visit - OUR LOVED ONES ARE STILL DYING BY SUICIDE - WHY?
BECAUSE THE GOVT & OTHER OFFICIAL BODIES CHOOSE NOT TO INVEST OR INVEST A BARE MINIMUM IN THIS AREA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - our loved ones are dying needlessly - all the resources we need to prevent any more suicides is there for the asking - all we need to do is: GET ENOUGH PEOPLE TO ASK!!!!!! We need the government to sit up, take notice, acknowledge the emergency and urgency of the situation and implement this scheme on a nationwide scale... IMMEDIATELY! THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH:(.
How many more of our children and loved ones have to die before something is done?

We, the undersigned, call on the Northern Ireland Assembly to begin the IMMEDIATE implementation of a NATIONWIDE Suicide Preventation Scheme which has been successfully demonstrated in Project X by Andrew Willoughby and to issue the voluntary sector with the ongoing resources required to do what they have been struggling to do for years - LETS PUT AN END TO SUICIDE.
HELP SAVE OUR LOVED ONES!
