Football tackles suicide fears

Thursday, December 04, 2014 By: Gerald | Tagged: , |

Suicide prevention was the focus at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility as teams battled it out in a 5-a-side football competition as part of National Suicide Prevention Week.

This was the eighth year of the competition and more than 150 players competed for the winners trophy on Wednesday 10 September. Twenty-six teams from across Lanarkshire took park, including sides from Barnardo's,  NHS Lanarkshire, Reeltime Music,North Lanarkshire Leisure. The winners of the tournament were the Fire Service with the players coming from different divisions across Lanarkshire and the runners were the McDonald's team from East Kilbride.

The event was organised by North Lanarkshire Council Social Work in partnership with Choose Life, NHS Lanarkshire and North Lanarkshire Leisure.

Lynne Cruickshank, Senior Officer for younger adults with said: "Sport is a great way to reach people with messages about suicide prevention. Being aware of the signs means we might notice when someone is considering suicide and we could then offer support and possibly help save a life.

"Everyday around two people die from suicide in Scotland with three out of four being male.

"Football can have a positive impact on mental wellbeing and participants were told about the impact suicide can have on the lives of not just those thinking about suicide, but the effect it can have on friends and family."

Scotlandhas the highest suicide rate in theUKand it is the leading cause of death in those under the age of 35 years.

Nicky Laughlin, Sport Development officer with North Lanarkshire Leisure added: "Football is a great way to bring people together and making them feel part of a team and community.

"Suicide has a devastating impact on lives and this event is a great way of raising awareness about what is a very sensitive issue which affects so many people. Every suicide is a tragic loss of life and we all have a role to play in suicide prevention."

Staff from the Terrance Higgins Trust, NHS Health Improvement, Action for Lone Parents and Phoenix Futures were amongst a number of stalls offering information and advice at the event.
