10 September - World Suicide Prevention Day

On September 10th, join with others around the world who are working towards the common goal of preventing suicide. Check in on someone you may be concerned about, and start a caring conversation with them, asking them how they’re going. Investigate ways of connecting with others who are trying to prevent suicide in your community, your country, or internationally. Show your support by taking part in the International Association for Suicide Prevention's Cycle Around the Globe.

12 September - Know Your Numbers Week

Are you a risk taker? You are if you don't know your blood pressure. High blood pressure puts you at risk of having a stroke or heart attack. Know your Numbers! is Blood Pressure UK's flagship awareness campaign. It encourages adults across the UK to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure.



21 September - National Eye Health Week

The seventh annual National Eye Health Week will take place 19 – 25 September 2016. Once again, eye care charities, organisations and health professionals from across the UK are joining together to promote the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests for all. There isn't any specific events happening in the South West but it may be an opportunity to promote good eye health!
