National Suicide Prevention Day

The theme for Suicide Prevention Awareness Day 2021 is Creating Hope Through Action.

The more mental health and suicide is discussed, the more that can be done to prevent tragedies from occurring. At Cliniwaste, we are strong advocates for mental wellbeing – we encourage our staff to talk about how they are feeling, and that it is okay not to be okay.

It is crucial to understand the benefits of discussing our mental health – through taking action, we can create hope for those struggling or those who have experienced struggles with theirs – or someone else’s – mental health in the past.

Cliniwaste were proud to have donated to Chris’s House through Rival’s Gym on the weekend of the 3rd September.

Scott & Sam at Rival’s Gym held a charity fight night to raise money for the excellent work Chris’s House do. Chris’s House stands for Centre of Help, Response and Intervention Surrounding Suicide, and has been set up to offer a safe environment where people in, or approaching, a suicidal crisis can have a safe place to go and get professional support. This will help them to begin to recover from their current mental ill-health.

Rival’s Gym also advocates strongly for mental wellbeing and taking care of your mental health through sport therefore this cause felt extremely important to us at Cliniwaste.

The event was a huge success for Rival’s Gym and Chris’s House and an outstanding amount of money was raised for the cause. We hope that everyone can become more aware of the importance of discussing mental health and taking action to prevent suicide going forward.
