I Need HelpWe all deserve to enjoy life and feel good about ourselves. Sometimes however life can be tough.

Whether you’re feeling great and want to stay that way, you’re a bit fed up; or you’re struggling to manage your feelings, this site has links to information and tips ranging from how to boost your mood, to where to get help if you’re unable to cope.

The site has been developed for people living in Warrington, so some of the services are for local people only. The words Localservice2 indicate which services are aimed at Warrington residents. Many of the links are for national sites however, so the information will be relevant wherever in England you live.

So that it's easier for you to find what you're looking for, we've divided the site into different sections.

World Suicide Prevention Day 2018

Monday 10 September 2018 was World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD). This year’s theme “working together to prevent suicide” encouraged us all to play a part and make a difference. It emphasised that suicide is often preventable and that by listening, challenging stigma, educating ourselves and working together, we can all help to save lives.

You can find out more about the campaign day from the website of the International Association for Suicide Prevention

Talking about suicide 
Research tells us that if we’re concerned someone might be feeling suicidal, then it’s important to ask them about suicide. This can be difficult, so listed below are links to free suicide prevention training and resources. The aim of these is to increase your confidence to ask about suicide, and to help you challenge stigma, raise awareness, and signpost people to support.
