How you can get free suicide awareness training in just 20 minutes

1 in 5 of us have had suicidal thoughts at some point in our lives which is why we could all benefit from increasing our mental health and suicide awareness.

We know it can be daunting, but talking about suicide doesn’t have to an expert. Being open and ready to have that conversation can help to save someone’s life. #letstalkaboutsuicideessex is a suicide prevention campaign for Essex Thurrock and Southend. This campaign was created by the NHS, local councils and other health and care organisations with the aim to reduce the stigma around talking about suicide and raise awareness of suicide prevention training.
