Health and social care organisations in Derbyshire have been working closely together for some time, to improve care and services for people and make them as efficient and effective as possible.
Friday 10th September 2021 marks World Suicide Prevention Day. This is an opportunity to raise awareness and to reduce the stigma around mental health and suicide prevention. The theme is Creating Hope Through Action
What can you do?
We can all play a role, at individual, group and organisation level.
The National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA) has created a toolkit for anyone to use World Suicide Prevention Day (nspa.org.uk)
