As a mental health practitioner, Christine 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. She is fully aware of how common suicidal thoughts are and as a trainer and campaigner she is familiar with all the barriers that exist around talking and asking about suicide. This short video below has been created to help to reduce that gap of understanding, reduce fear and encourage engagement.
