Suicidal Thoughts & Deliberate Self-Harm

Published research tells us that 1 in 4 people will seriously consider suicide at some point in their life. Whilst it can be frightening to be in this place and frightening to think about telling those that care about you, we have a great deal of experience of working with people who feel that they are almost beyond their limit. If you are feeling suicidal or recognise that you are doing things are are harmful to you, you might want to talk about it and consider if there are ways to increase your resources and reduce the possibility of harm to your self. We will consider the risks and plan with you to minimise the harm, to your self and to others.

Some of our staff are trained in the ASIST, suicide first aid method and can offer a specific conversation about being "safe for now".
