Reaching out to others

Support

Today was a big group. Some group members have been struggling with suicidal thoughts over the last week. The group looked at ways in which these people could be supported. We looked at ways of creating a new set of “keeping safe” measures for someone to do if they felt suicidal. Some of the measures discussed where; phoning friends/keyworker, visiting friends, contacting crisis lines. By having this “safety net” in place in times of despair it could really help someone
There were positive steps being made for arranging the group’s November event with people networking with Radio stations and MSPS. We have made good progress on our new leaflet and is almost ready for publication.
