A4MH releases Press Statement urging sensitivity and kindness towards people in distress

The Alliance for Mental Health is deeply disturbed by the behaviour of the persons in the footage published by Times of Malta while a distressed person was considering taking his own life.

We need to educate the general public that anyone on any ‘ledge’ is to be listened to, heard and helped.No one stands on the ledge ‘for attention’, any person who puts themselves on the ‘ledge’ is in a state of extreme distress. Being sensitive and kind towards all those around us is what prevents suicide.

Any suicide attempt is to be dealt with the utmost care and respect because every life matters.A4MH would like to thank the police and emergency services for their hard work and commitment towards suicide prevention.
