Over 75% of suicides in West Yorkshire are men.
Anyone can feel low, alone and even suicidal. We’re asking the men of West Yorkshire to simply check-in with a mate who might be struggling alone.
But they don’t need to have all the answers. We’ve put together a set of campaign resources for you to help promote this campaign and signpost to the most up to date support.
Think of a mate you haven’t spoken to for a while then call or message them.
Talk to your mate. Ask them how they are, what’s new and how they’ve been feeling.
Keep in touch. If your mate is feeling down, get them to take a look at our website.
This campaign aims to work with people across West Yorkshire so we are all aware of the warning signs and able to support people to build resilience – and importantly prevent them from taking their life.
Below you will find a collection of online and offline resources which could be used in a number of settings, to engage others about how they can manage their mental health and support those who might be in need around them.
