Welcome to Start a Conversation

If you have found yourself here looking for support for yourself, or for somebody else, there is help available. Remember you are not alone.

Through our campaign, we want to support people who may be struggling with their mental health or thoughts of suicide. We believe we can do this together by sharing reliable information, raising awareness, having more open conversations and breaking down the stigma. Mental health and suicide are everyone's business so join us and Start a Conversation today.


Our goal is to help build a community that is committed to the mental health and wellbeing of our residents. We believe that every person has the potential to make a difference and can change or save a life.

The campaign is led by Leicestershire County Council, and supported by members of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Suicide and Audit Prevention group. This group is made up of a number of organisations, from a variety of sectors, with a joint commitment and strategy to prevent suicide.
