Suicide Prevention


If you are having thoughts of suicide or self-harm it is important to know that you are not alone.


Many people will have thoughts of suicide and harming themselves during points of crisis and uncertainty. Help is available when you are feeling low, struggling to cope and in distress.


You may be thinking:

"I can't cope"

"I can't do this anymore"

"I cant go on"

"I want to die"
