#TALKSUICIDEESSEX

Anyone can suffer from suicidal thoughts but every one of us can make a difference.

A life is lost through suicide every two hours in the UK but suicidal thoughts and feelings affect thousands of us every single day.

In 2019, 111 people lost their lives to suicide across greater Essex; 83% were male.

The #talksuicideessex campaign has been created by the Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership to reduce the stigma around talking about suicide and raise awareness of suicide prevention training available FREE to ALL from the Zero Suicide Alliance.
