Get Help

No-one needs to go through anything alone. If you have come to this page because you are thinking about suicide, please read this

We deliver suicide prevention training. We are not an emergency service or support line, and we are not able to offer urgent or immediate suicide prevention support.

 

There is lots of help available and YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Below we have listed just some of the UK organisations that can support you.
