Our Director Vicky Waring is launching her own personal campaign to try and help remove the stigma and judgement associated with Mental Health and Suicide. This ties in with the work she is doing around the concept 'Safe Spaces'. A safe space will be a place people will know they wont be judged, will be safe and signposted to the right help and support. Vicky's aim is to have local venues undertake training so they are trained to help those who may want to utilise their venue as a Safe Space. Vicky's personal experience with suicide drives her passion to help others who have been touched in any way.
Please watch this video and share far and wide and let’s together help prevent suicide and remove the stigma.
