We are pleased to announce that we are working alongside a special small local business to raise awareness about mental health, to stop the stigma and get people talking about suicide and mental health. Jemz Rememberz are donating £1 of each sale of their Suicide Awareness range (semicolon jewellery) to YAMS. This range includes semicolon bracelets and rings.
The semicolon has become a symbol of hope among people who suffer from depression and have been tempted to take their own lives. A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended, but chose not to. The sentence is your life and the author is you. If you ever see someone with a semicolon tattoo or semicolon piece of jewellery it’s because they chose to continue their life when faced with thoughts of suicide or know someone who has. Let’s talk about it.
YAMS will showcase a range of this jewellery at our HUB in Brannock High School and is available to buy through the company website.
