Spot the Signs and Save a Life
Spot the Signs and Save a Life is a suicide prevention campaign, helping to remove the stigma of talking openly about suicide. The campaign provides training courses and signposts to mental health services available in Hertfordshire.
The overarching ambition is zero suicides in Hertfordshire, which is consistent with the national suicide prevention strategy for England. The campaign also aims to improve support for those bereaved or affected by suicide. The aims are to:
- increase public awareness of depression and suicide and remove the stigma linked with suicide;
- provide suicide prevention training to GPs, healthcare providers and the voluntary sector in Hertfordshire;
- work with companies to create safer workplaces;
- signpost to mental health services available in Hertfordshire.
The campaign highlights the importance of working together to prevent suicide and the campaign's vision is to make Hertfordshire a county where no one ever gets to a point where they feel suicide is their only option.
