List of pages

Our suicide prevention campaign 'Lincolnshire Suicide SAFE' aims to get local communities involved in helping to prevent suicides in the county and raise awareness of what we can all do to support our friends, family, colleagues and neighbours.

Every suicide is an individual tragedy and a terrible loss to society. Suicides are not inevitable and everybody can play a role in preventing them.

The reasons for suicide can be very complex, but generally it's the result of problems or worries building up to a point where someone feels they cannot cope anymore and can't see another other option or way out. A recent loss or break up of a relationship, problems with work or money, or living alone with little social contact can all be reasons people think about suicide, even if they have never had a mental health problem before.

It is often difficult to identify whether you or someone you are worried about is struggling to cope, however being able to recognise some of the signs is a good start. You can read more about this and how to get help by using this link.
