Citizens Advice Liverpool make a commitment to prevent suicide on Merseyside

This World Suicide Prevention Day, Citizens Advice Liverpool committed as an organisation to prevent any suicide across Merseyside by asking all staff and volunteers to undertake the Zero Suicide: Basic Awareness training to give them the confidence to have a life saving conversation.

Across the UK around 6,000 people die by suicide each year, that’s nearly 16 people every day, and far too many tragic deaths by suicide happen in our own area. The significant rise in awareness and acceptance of mental illness has meant that this once rarely spoken about issue now has a greater level of commitment to its reduction than ever before.

The Zero Suicide campaign, launched by MerseyCare and the Zero Suicide Alliance, aims to reduce the level of suicide in our city region. The aims of this training are to enable people to identify when someone is presenting with suicidal thoughts or behaviour, to be able to speak out in a

supportive manner, and to empower them to signpost the individual to the correct services or support.
