It adopts a holistic approach to suicide-related topics, focusing on prevention, intervention and postvention, an intervention conducted after a suicide for loved ones and friends. With the mission to be an available lifeline to anyone in crisis, SOS offers emotional support to people in crisis, thinking of suicide, or affected by suicide.

“During these challenging times, SOS is committed to be a key advocate for suicide prevention in Singapore. Bringing to attention the importance of a strong, and capable support network during difficult times is more important than before.
I am glad that SOS will be bringing together more than 30 local and overseas leaders to share insights into the specifics of suicide prevention across different demographics. I hope that this Symposium will extend evidence-based approaches to how we serve our clients through their most difficult periods.”
