STOP Suicide Campaign with MIND
Cambridge Filmworks have teamed up with the mental health charity Mind to produce a brand new film to raise awareness of suicide prevention.
An estimated 1 in 5 of us has had suicidal thoughts at some point in our lives. Every year almost twice as many people die as a result of suicide in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire than as a result of road accidents.
STOP Suicide is an award-winning suicide prevention campaign that seeks to empower communities and individuals to help stop suicides by being alert to the warning signs, asking directly about suicide and helping those who are feeling suicidal to stay safe.
It involves general awareness raising about suicide, specialist training for non-mental health professionals working / volunteering within our communities and a public campaign to encourage sign up to the STOP Suicide Pledge for organisations and individuals.
