It might be impossible to get to zero, but the UK needs to do something, the current numbers are staggering.
Figures from the Samaritans show 6,188 suicides were recorded in the UK in 2015, an average of 17 per day.
It’s not just the UK either, these numbers are similar in the US, Australia, Europe and on and on. We are losing far too many lives to continue doing the same thing. I’m glad there are groups in these countries willing to try new things to help.
