Cumbernauld 10k teams up with Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire

Promoting the benefits of positive mental health

Cumbernauld 10k and Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire

The partnership will help raise awareness on self-care which is about the choices we make every day to stay happy and healthy.

These include the small things we do like getting enough sleep, to bigger self-care choices, such as going to see a counsellor or attending an anger management course.

The Cumbernauld 10k will take place on Sunday 15 September which is during suicide awareness week and will support the campaign to have a suicide safer North Lanarkshire.

For many people, it's not about wanting to die, it's about making the pain and dark moods disappear. Having these feelings doesn't have to end in suicide. The next step is about talking.

Talking about our fears and feelings can be difficult; even to those we love and care about. Not talking can stop people that we care about recognising that something is wrong and offering to help.

Join our 'RU THAT GUY' Suicide Prevention text alert and be that person who will text or call their friends, maybe after a night out, maybe after a tough week or just when you suspect they maybe aren't themselves.

Just one simple text could make all the difference to someone who needs help. Text 'THATGUY' to 60163.
