Over the weekend South Liverpool Treatment Centre and Kensington Neighbourhood Health Centre were lit up in red to mark Armistice Day.

Armistice Day or Remembrance Day is observed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to commemorate the end of the First World War.

Remembrance Day is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life. Led by the Royal British Legion Remembrance Day 2023 focused on remembering and honouring Service.

Remembrance unites people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds as we remember the Armed Forces, and their families, from Britain and the Commonwealth, the vital role played by the emergency services and those who have lost their lives as a result of conflict or terrorism.


On the 10 September, South Liverpool Treatment Centre joined organisations and communities around the world to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.

The latest suicides statistics showed that in 2018, in the UK and Republic of Ireland, more than 6,800 people died by suicide. Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy. And we know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable. But not being OK is still widely stigmatised.

This World Suicide Prevention Day, Samartians are highlighting the importance of the language we use when we talk about suicide, especially when asking someone you're worried about if they're suicidal.

It’s important to talk and write about suicide safely and responsibly. Using the right language around suicide is key to breaking down stigma. When we use our words carefully we can create a safe environment for people to open up. Read more here:
