Sumithrayo with you always! - Daily News

The number of people who say that they have been pulled back from the brink of suicide by speaking with Sri Lanka Sumithrayo (SLS) is a stark revelation of the extent of emotional distress in our society. People faced with an emotional crisis mostly require informal and confidential emotional support. In Sri Lanka, on an average, 12 persons die by suicide every single day of the year. And for each person who dies by suicide, at least 10 others fail in their attempt to end their life. SLS volunteers/befrienders help callers by giving them a patient and caring hearing, and letting them unburden themselves by talking about their predicament.

Everyone has these moments, says Sri Lanka Sumithrayo where understanding, empathy and emotional support towards positive thoughts and re-establishing self confidence are offered to all those in distress.

Don't feel alone, there's someone you can reach out to – Sunday Times

Suicide is a complex problem for which there is no single cause or single reason. It results from a complex interaction of biological, psychological, social, cultural and environmental factors. Suicide has no racial or class distinctions. However, suicides can be prevented and suicide prevention is everyone's responsibility. A person who is suicidal feels isolated and alone with his or her problem, which seems beyond their capacity to cope with. People contemplate suicide when their pain exceeds their resources for coping with it. At times like these, talking about their stressful situation with a non-judgmental, accepting, understanding and caring person can throw a different light on the situation and help diffuse the suicidal impulse.
