Mission 135

On average, every death by suicide affects up to 135 people.

That means in 2023, more than 753,000 people were affected by suicide in the UK.

Our mission is to support the 135 affected by preventing the 1 from taking their life.  

What is Mission 135?

Mission 135 is our year-long campaign to raise vital funds and awareness for suicide prevention and bereavement support

How does Mission 135 work?

Mission 135 is split into three 'pillars': Network 135, Club 135, and Team 135. 

Put simply...

Network 135 - For businesses
Club 135 - For fundraisers
Team 135 - For donations

You can find out more about each pillar below

Why 135?

The 135 figure comes from research from Dr Julie Cerel in which she stated that every suicide affects, on average, 135 people.

This number does, of course, fluctuate. This is just an average. But when you line this research up with ONS suicide data from 2023, the results are startling.

This average of 135 means that in 2023 roughly 753,000 people in the UK were affected by suicide. To put that into context that's more than double the population of Sunderland... and that's almost every single year.

We believe the best way to support the 135 people affected is to prevent the 1 from taking their own life. In order to do that, we need to raise vital funds in order to maintain our outstanding support mechanisms.
