Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, and people are encouraged to light a candle near a window in their home at 8pm this evening, in memory of those lost to suicide.

Pieta House says the "Light A Candle campaign" is a symbol of support for suicide prevention, as suicide impacts on all communities - from rural towns and villages to major cities.

Pieta House runs a number of services nationwide to support people and communities in crisis, including free counselling services for those at risk of self-harm and for those bereaved by suicide.

Pieta now has 15 centres and 3 outreach services across the country and operates a 24-hour suicide helpline on 1800 247 247.
