During our Suicide Prevention & Awareness sessions, we often have people who will come along and want to make more of a difference in their local communities. Where possible, we want to empower this – so we wanted to create specific resources page on our website filled with useful information which people can download and share in their local communities.
Please feel free to use this page as a source of resources – and do contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel any resources should be added to it!
