STOP Suicide is an award-winning suicide prevention campaign that seeks to empower communities and individuals to help stop suicides by being alert to the warning signs, asking directly about suicide and helping those who are feeling suicidal to stay safe.

Supporting Someone to Stay Safe
For anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts, sessions will support you to record and create your Safety Plan.
It’s designed to offer hope, compassion and practical ideas on how to find your own way forward.
Having a safety plan is a protective factor in journey forward.
During sessions I can help you build your strategies and resources around self care and addressing other areas to support wellbeing.
