ANGUS SUICIDE PREVENTION COLLABORATION AT LP
Members of Angus Suicide Prevention Collaborative mingled amongst the busy crowd at the recent Stenhousemuir match to raise awareness of the Tayside ‘Suicide? Help!’
An App and support are available via the website www.suicidehelp.co.uk, where you will find information about suicide, contacts for support, how to help and there is space for individuals to develop their own safety plan.
The link with football highlights the link between physical activity and positive mental health. In 2017, the suicide rate for males was more than two-and-a half times that for females, so awareness raising activities where there is a high male audience is needed.
It is important to let everyone know that there is help and support available in Angus and other areas of Tayside. There is also free basic suicide awareness training available in Angus for anyone who lives or works in Angus
