Supporting A Suicide Safer Devon
We’re a Devon-based Community Interest Company and the main aspiration behind our organisation is to prevent suicide and create a sustained, resourced and supported network of trained Suicide First Aiders across the county and beyond. Our work is inspired by LivingWorks – an international organisation based in Canada who have pioneered community-based programs focused on prevention, intervention and increasing awareness.
We’re committed to making our community more suicide safe and suicide aware through our training programmes. We’re also passionate about raising the profile of the issues around suicide and reducing stigma.
We’d like to train 625 people to become Suicide First Aiders within their communities – so that, collectively, we can prevent this tragic loss of life.
