Get help - you are NOT alone

If you have come to this page because you are thinking about suicide, please read this. 

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

Know this: Whatever you're going through, you are not alone.

Below are a number of UK organisations that can support you. If any others have helped you, please let me know.
