World Mental Health Day
Like many other organisations, Gemini Rail are supporting World Mental Health Day on 10th October.
The focus for this year’s awareness campaign is suicide & suicide prevention.
The number of railway fatalities caused by suicides in Great Britain increased from 192 fatalities in 2001/02, to 249 fatalities in 2017/18. Although this is an increase over the 18 years in question, the number of fatalities recorded in 2017/18 were the second lowest at any time since 2011/12.
We must continue to shout about the growing support that is available for those that need it.
Gemini Rail Group’s charity of choice, Kaleidoscope Plus Group, have now partnered with the international crisis text line service ‘Shout’ to be able to provide their very own text line service for people who may be feeling in distress or suicidal.
The line is available 24/7 and is free of charge.
All people need to do is text TeamKPG to 85258.
