Stigma about suicide and self harm get in the way of seeking help

Today on gem fm we are looking at what it is that gets in the way of people seeking help for self harm or suicide. Mental health stigma, bad attitudes, what other people think… Are these things that stop people asking for help?

We are trying to change the face of services. Helping people to feel that services are accessible and are going to be able to help them is vital.

Caroline talks about the desperate need for services to change before more people lose their lives and Zoe, someone whose accessed services for self harm and suicide, speaks of poor treatment in the NHS.
Have a listen to the interviews and a read of the article and let us know what you think.

Call for greater self harm and suicide prevention work in schools

This morning, the Gem fm campaign turns it’s attention to
what work can be done with schools to improve education for
students around the issue of self harm and suicide prevention. Gem
talk to East Leake Academy, who, after tragic circumstances worked
closely with Harmless and The Tomorrow Project to ensure that the
best possible support was offered to its students. Nottingham
academy speaks about their determination to undertake work of a
similar nature following an increase in self harming as an issue
amongst its students. The Tomorrow Project is able to work with
schools and communities effected by suicide or high rates of self
harm to ensure that all individuals have access to good quality
information about the subjects – we can do talks and group work, or
talk with projects to see what help is most needed. If you would
like to learn more about our work and what we can do for your
school or project, please contact tomorrow@harmless.org.uk or call
0115 9348445. If you would like to read today’s Gem fm article

World Suicide Prevention Day 2013

In 2011 there were 6045 suicides in the UK and the Male suicide rate is approximately 3 times higher than female rates.

Lots of people feel suicidal at some point in their lives. Thousands go into hospital each year having tried to harm themselves. Many more try to take their own lives - and nobody ever gets to know about it.

This is why feeling suicidal can be dangerous and needs to be talked about. 

The Tomorrow Project is a confidential suicide prevention project which was set up in response to the needs and concerns of the local community.

Life can be difficult but it can get better, with the right support and opportunity, it doesn’t have to end. No matter how big or small you think your problems are, don’t be afraid to ask for help: www.tomorrowproject.org.uk
