A spokesperson said: "GibSams offers an anonymous and confidential Freephone service 116123 and we want to encourage people to talk and not suffer in silence. It’s “OK not to be OK” and it is “Ok to Talk!”. 

"Suicide Prevention Awareness Month is our chance to stop and assess ourselves and those around us and make sure someone who desperately needs our help isn’t missing out. We will be launching 'Let’s Get Gibraltar Talking' on 1st September at the Piazza. We hope the whole community will support GibSams in this initiative. Remember to keep your eyes open, the life you save can be one very close to you"
