Shine a light for LAMP in aid of Mental Health
LAMP’s shine a light campaign seeks to encourage people to call, message or reach out and emphasise the importance of a conversation.
This campaign will run from 10th September, which marks World Suicide Prevention Day, and the theme is ‘Creating Hope through Action,’ until 10th October, which marks World Mental Health Day, and the theme is Mental Health in an Unequal World’.

Why not shine your light every day?
- Message someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. Whether it is to arrange a coffee or walk, or a simple how are you text?
- You don’t have to use your phone. Why not put a positive message in your window at home and light it up for people to see? Changing the message each day or week.
- Reach out to people on social media with a ‘I am here to talk’ showing you’re readily available to someone in need
There are many ways to be the light during dark times. Maybe you are the light, and you need to be seen. Shine and talk.
