This booklet has been created by Brighter Futures, it is designed to be a source of help whether you may be having thoughts of suicide yourself, or if you are concerned about someone else.
The Suicide Prevention Champions Project runs across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire and is a way of helping individuals at risk of suicide with the aim to ultimately help save lives.
Very often suicide is seen as a taboo subject and consequently people are fearful of talking about it. The truth however is that by simply talking and/or listening to someone who is thinking about suicide can in itself be life-saving.
The Suicide Prevention Champions Project is focused on helping individuals, organisations and businesses across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent gain the skills and confidence they need to talk about suicide in their community.
Anyone and everyone can save a life and can also help break down the stigma around suicide and better understand how to support someone who may
potentially be a suicide risk.
