Suicide is a difficult topic and hopefully one that never impacts your college or community.

The reality, however, is that it does cross the minds of many young people. . In fact, suicide is the leading cause of death among young people, the numbers are alarmingly high. FAMS are a well established local charity dedicated to supporting young people. We believe sharing information and awareness raising are key to early intervention and prevention.

FAMS’ “Design Our Logo” competition is open to all schools, colleges and youth groups throughout Lanarkshire. This is the charity’s fourth annual event, each year attracting more interest from young people.
