Help is out there

It has come as a shock to us to discover that the town where we have our base, St Helens, has been given the awful title of UK Suicide Capital.  

There are many reasons why this may be the case, however this article is not about that.

I want to highlight to anyone considering ending it that there is help and support out there. 

Talk things through with someone you can trust. 

If you don’t think you have anyone you can talk to then call the Samaritans on 116123 (UK). They will not judge, they will not blame. They will listen for however long it takes. 

Life throws at us many challenges. They often put immense pressure on us. But there are always solutions  if you ask for help. 

People may not always say it but there are people who love you. The consequences of ending it all does not lie just with you. 

Think of your family, your friends, and colleagues. They want you in their lives. You are worth something to them. They can help you. All you need to be is brave and ask. 

Stay safe.
