Saving lives
Suicide Awareness

We work with people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to raise awareness and help to prevent suicide.

Start a Conversation

We are proud to be working in partnership with Leicestershire County Council to coordinate the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Start a Conversation campaign. Through the campaign we hope to help you have more open conversations about suicide and to work together with your community to help prevent people taking their own life.

Find out more and pledge your support today on the Start a Conversation website.

Help in a Crisis

If you're thinking about suicide or going through a personal crisis there is help available, you don't need to face these thoughts and feelings alone.

Talking to someone about how you feel is the first step to getting better. Think about who the best person to talk to might be. They could be a trusted friend or family member. It could be someone in the community who you see regularly such as a friend, neighbour or even a teacher or sports coach.

You might choose to speak to your GP, call NHS 111 or Samaritans 116 123. There is no shame in asking for help.

If you or someone you know is at immediate risk of suicide call 999 and ask for an ambulance.
