How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
We work with isolated individuals and people struggling with their mental health. Many of our team have personal experience of mental health struggles.
We run a weekly drop-in service every Wednesday evening at 7pm in Harrogate which is free to access for people to connect, learn, support and champion each other. We understand mental health.
We also offer 1:1 therapy, events for people to connect and support each other as well as a dedicated phone line that operates daily 9 – 7 (01423 421245) for anyone who feels they need to reach out.
