- Family & loved ones who support someone who experiences suicidal thoughts.
- Anyone who has been affected by self-harm and suicide.
- People from a variety of geographical areas and diverse cultural backgrounds.
Why should I get involved?
- To have your say in what services and activities are needed in your area around self-harm and suicide prevention.
- To meet like-minded people.
- Training is available to improve your self-confidence, look after your mental health or develop skills to support someone else who might be struggling.
- To have your say in what else the LEN could do to support those who need it.
How can you help?
There are different ways you can get involved:
- Reading and commenting on proposed strategy documents.
