SOS (Samaritans of Singapore) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. It is a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people who have difficulty coping during a crisis, who are thinking of suicide or affected by suicide.

A crisis can hit anyone at any time. The sense of hopelessness and despair at the height of a crisis can cause people to contemplate suicide as a way to escape their emotional pain.

However, people can and do recover from this difficult period, especially when there is strong support from the people around them. Some people may also need professional support to help them through a crisis.

If YOU are in some form of crisis or feeling suicidal, then contact someone and let them know about it.

If someone you know is going through a hard time, do know that you are already helping just by being there for the person! Find out more about helping someone in crisis.

Event update - International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day 2015

24 November 2015

In conjunction with International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day, SOS organised a gathering for local suicide survivors (family and friends who have lost loved ones through suicide) on 21 November 2015.

48 survivors attended the event, the highest number so far for a gathering of survivors in SOS.

Survivors mingled over lunch, after which they watched a video screening of Family Journeys: Healing and Hope after a Suicide. This video was produced by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to commemorate the date this year. A sharing session facilitated by trained SOS professionals followed and for the first time, a young person stepped forward to share her experiences. Many survivors stayed on after the event was over to continue to seek support from, and support, one another.

SOS sincerely thanks all attendees for making the event a successful and meaningful afternoon for all. 

To watch Family Journeys Hope and Healing After A Suicide, visit www.survivorday.org.
