10 September was World Suicide Prevention Day and CandleX marked this important day by running a Suicide Prevention Campaign since then until now.
In September, CandleX and thebeijinger joined together to raise awareness on suicide prevention. CandleX was featured in a short article in thebeijinger published on 10 September about mental health options in Beijing. An anonymous member of the CandleX support group discussed their experiences and shared their own advice for talking to people who are struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts:
“Listen and don’t panic. My ability to talk about my experience, and the fact I consider myself someone who is successfully managing mental illness, stems from a support network, with who I can talk freely about my feelings without judgment.”
