StopSuicide value and care for each person who seeks their services. Through their experience of working with self- harm and suicide they acknowledge the very difficult life events that can lead people to hurt themselves, or end their lives.
Their purpose is to provide a safe, confidential place where you can safely talk about the loss, stress, confusion, conflicts and other pain in your life. Their style of Counselling is to Listen, Support and perhaps help you with insight to either change what is possible to change or to live more contentedly and creatively with that which is not. They act to intervene with appropriate support, commitment and compassion.
Adequate funding must be provided for suicide prevention, otherwise they cannot be effective. STOP Suicide will continue to lobby for regular funding for similar voluntary groups. They greatly acknowledge all the groups, individuals, clubs, organisations and agencies that consistently fund raise for STOP Suicide.
