By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Leading independent PR Measurement and Evaluation Agency in Nigeria, P+ Measurement Services, has partnered with SSPI to sensitize and raise awareness about the need to reduce the number of suicide victims in Nigeria using the #SayNoToSuicide Campaign theme.

The campaign will be activated through the Smart Suicide Prevention Initiative (SSPI) with the Measurement and Evaluation agency releasing personalized creatives to drive engagement on social media.

Lead Consultant at P+ Measurement Services, Mr Philip Odiakose, stated that, “Partnering with the SSPI, a long-time leader in the field of mental health care, is critically important and will allow us to reach an audience that is especially vulnerable to suicide.”

He said further that, “The #SayNoToSuicide campaign creatives and engagement will aid in educating people about suicide risk and how to identify and care for the suicidal individuals.

“We know we can’t do this alone. Only by working with experts like SSPI will we be able to save more lives.”

Also commenting, founder of SSPI, Smart MA Chongo, disclosed that, “This partnership creates a real opportunity to bring forth major interventions with the potential for immediately saving lives.”

The SSPI founder further said that the forthcoming World Suicide Prevention Day Rally will be taking place at the Unity Fountain, Abuja on September 8, 2018 by 10am.

The collaboration between the two organizations underscores the importance of working together to tackle a rarely discussed health topic in Nigeria, he added.
