Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust

Sober October with Life Matters

$1,821 raised
Starts: 1 Oct 2022
Ends: 31 Oct 2022

This is your chance to challenge yourself to a month without alcohol, while also raising money for Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust.


Alcohol can make mental health conditions worse especially if it's your main coping strategy. It can contribute to developing a mental health condition as it disrupts the balance of chemicals in the brain. For example, serotonin which helps regulate mood.

Alcohol can be used to relax but is also addictive and can lead to dependency. Alcohol creates stress rather than reducing it. Heavy drinking is associated with impulsivity and aggression which are strongly implicated in suicidal behaviour.

Through Sober October, you have an opportunity to encourage safer drinking habits. Join us in a month sober, and help us raise money to support the Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust.

Caution - this challenge is aimed at social drinkers, please do not participate in this challenge without seeking advice from your GP if you are a heavy drinker.
