Talking about suicide saves lives. The vast majority of those thinking about suicide will find some way to signal their intent. Most suicidal people are looking for another option. They don't want to die. But preventing suicide takes two people—a helper and the person at risk.
Carlisle Eden Mind is funded by Public Health Cumbria to deliver free and subsidised suicide prevention training to community groups, charitable organisations and the Public Sector across Cumbria.
