9月焦點September Focus

台灣生命線開線將近50年,各地的生命線協會不僅提供24小時線上協談服務,更憑藉著深耕社區、與民眾建立了互信基礎,漸漸地成為政府單位推動自殺防治、心理健康、弱勢服務等社會福利工作最佳的協力夥伴。生命線總會理事長;同時也是台中榮總嘉義分院副院長黃敏偉提到今年度世界自殺防治日的主題:Working Together to Prevent Suicide-同心協力防自殺,就是全台生命線協會努力的寫照。

Taiwan Lifeline has been operating for nearly 50 years.  The local chapters not only provide 24-hour online live call service, but through working with communities and earning trust, have also become the Government’s best partner in suicide prevention, mental health, underprivileged support, and other social welfare services. The Chairman of the Lifeline Association, vice president of Taichung Veterans General Hospital Chia-yi Branch Huang Min-wei, comments that the theme of this year's World Suicide Prevention Day: Working Together to Prevent suicide, portrays exactly what the entire Taiwan Lifeline focus the efforts on.

呼應今年自殺防治日主題,總會特別針對「基隆市生命線」進行焦點報導:主因為2009年至2015年,基隆市的自殺率皆位居台灣全國排行前三名,堪稱憂鬱城市;近幾年透過政府與民間的共同努力,其中更積極與基隆市生命線合作下,在2017年,自殺率明顯下降至全國第15名,擺脫憂鬱城市之名。因此,總會除撰寫相關報導之外,亦於2018年9月8日,在本會理事長黃敏偉帶領下,邀請韓國成均館大學全弘鎮教授等韓國自殺防治學者前往基隆市生命線進行國際參訪交流,此交流活動除感謝基隆市生命線張文亮理事長與李昌萬主任的精心規劃,更獲得基隆市衛生局王瑛蘭秘書親臨支持,現場除介紹基隆生命線,更由總會完整介紹全台生命線系統,為台灣生命線系統做一完整的介紹與宣傳。

Echoing the theme of this year's Suicide Prevention Day, our HQ specifically runs a Focus Report on Keelung Lifeline: Between 2009 and 2015, Keelung's suicide rate consistently ranked one of the highest three in Taiwan, getting unwanted reputation as a melancholy city.  In recent years, through the joint efforts of the Government and the private sector, especially with Keelung Lifeline’s proactive collaboration, in 2017 the suicide rate fell significantly to 15th in the nation, ridding itself of the melancholy city moniker. As such, in addition to writing relevant articles, our HQ led by Chairman Huang Min-Wei also invited Korean scholars including Professor Hong-jin Jeon of Sunkyunkwan university to visit Keelung Lifeline for an international exchange. This exchange owed gratitude to the meticulous planning by Keelung Lifeline Chairman Chang Wen-Liang and director Lee Chang-Wan, and even in-person support by the Keelung Health Bureau Secretary Wang Ying-Lan.  The exchange introduced the work of Keelung Lifeline, while the HQ also presented a comprehensive overview of Taiwan Lifeline systems, promoting the work of and awareness of Taiwan Lifeline systems.

在9月9日的2018年世界自殺防治日記者會及年會暨學術研討會上,本會黃敏偉理事長亦應邀擔任全弘鎮教授專題演講之主持人。每個細小的耕耘,都希望讓更多人認識與了解台灣生命線對於自殺防治的付出與貢獻,進而邀請更多夥伴加入與支持。

During the Sep 9th 2018 Annual Conference of Taiwanese Society of Suicidology, Chairman Huang Min-Wei was also invited to serve as the moderator of Professor Hong-jin Jeon's keynote speech.  Through every small effort, we hope to let more people know and appreciate the contribution of Taiwan Lifeline in suicide prevention, and thus encourage more partners to join in and support the cause.
