Let’s Talk - Suicide Prevention
Everyone can experience feelings of low mood or have suicidal thoughts. You may feel worried about someone will react. But you'll be surprised that people are willing to listen.
There's lots of different types of support available but taking that initial step to talk to someone is the first move to feeling better.
If you are feeling suicidal, phone the Samaritans on 116 123 (free 24-hour service or visit www.samaritans.org) or Breathing Space on 0800 838587 (free to call between 6pm and 2am or visit www.breathingspace.scot) for self-help and management.
If you are a young person, contact Childline on 0800 1111 or visit www.childline.org.uk.
Our campaign aimed at young people is to encourage people to speak out about their feelings. Don't hide your feelings behind a mask. Talk to someone you trust. It will be the first step towards feeling better.
Our latest campaign explains that anyone can have suicidal thoughts. We all have bad days, but for some people, life just feels too hard. Anyone could have these feelings and it's sometimes the person we least expect that is suffering. But with help, these feelings can be overcome. It starts with reaching out. Let's talk.
