It’s ok to talk about suicide

A suicide prevention website has been launched in Dudley to encourage people to talk about suicide and raise awareness of support services available.

The ‘reach out’ campaign encourages people to visit which signposts people towards support services, people and organisations who can offer help.

Whether you are worried about someone, you are struggling with suicidal thoughts or you have been affected by suicide, we encourage you to look on the website. Please take that first step and reach out!

The Campaign runs alongside Dudley’s five-year Suicide Prevention Plan until 2023. Which seeks to improve training for staff, raise awareness and target high risk groups to offer more support and guidance.
