Unifying Communities: Strengthening Hope Conference 2019

In 2017, 361 lives were lost to suicide and the number of elderly suicides had risen to 129, the highest recorded in Singapore. In fact, suicide is the leading cause of external deaths in Singapore and it is the leading cause of death for those aged 10 – 29. Although suicide is a serious public health concern that cuts across the lifespan and different cultures, it remains a sensitive and taboo topic in Singapore. Hence, the current situation demands more open conversations and more actions toward suicide prevention work.


In conjunction with Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) 50th anniversary conference, titled Unifying Communities; Strengthening Hope brings together experts in different fields of work to share their knowledge and experience with professionals from the social service sector. This year, we have included opportunities to discuss matters related to the elderly, digital media, workplace mental health, and challenges faced by minority groups in Singapore.


As part of SOS’ golden jubilee celebrations, we are extending a limited offer for first 50 successful registrants: Simply use the promo code “SOS50” during registration to be eligible for S$50.00 off the original ticket price (U.P. S$120.00)!
