Festival of Life and Death - Global Suicide Prevention and Societal Wellness

Festival of Life and Death - Global Suicide Prevention and Societal Wellness

"The ‘Festival of Life and Death’ (‘FoLaD’) is a global events/movement for a world without suicide, and all this means.

Mainly this means:

  • Suicide awareness/prevention/education  – especially breaking suicide taboos and stigma.
  • Promoting/enabling individual and societal wellness via free community ‘festival’ events that involve local people performing/participating in all sorts of wellness experiences, especially arts/music/dance, nature/animals, crafts, yoga/mindfulness, good food and drink, and simply talking and listening, unleashing the powers of ‘lived experience’ guides/teachers/role-models/etc.
  • Helping people bereaved by and affected suicide and other grief/trauma is also integral to FoLaD."
