Pledge your support
Suicide is preventable and we'd like you to become a key partner in its prevention.
Whether you're an individual or an organisation, we encourage you to pledge your support for the Start a Conversation campaign so that we can work together as a community to prevent suicide.
You can show your support by:
- making a pledge (details below)
- using #StartAConversation on social media
Everyone can make a valued contribution to prevent suicide. Through our pledge campaign and working together we hope to:
- raise awareness of suicide and the impact it has on our community
- show care and compassion for those in need of support
- challenge the assumptions and stigma attached to suicide
- start a conversation and identify warning signs in a hope to prevent suicidal behaviour
- promote emotional health and wellbeing in our communities
Through hard work and dedication we can build a sustainable suicide-safe community across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
As an individual
I pledge to:
- start a conversation if I feel overburdened or worried
- start a conversation with a friend, family member or a colleague if I'm worried about them
- start a conversation and ask for help if I need it
- keep an eye out for warning signs in others
Not sure what to say?
Starting a conversation with someone you are worried about isn't always easy.
