We have been called to four such cases in the last 10 days all, thankfully, with a successful outcome.
Life can often seem hard, problems build up and things don't make sense and as a team we never judge - we work with partner agencies to bring the person back into a place of safety where they can talk to someone and get some support.
There's lots of help out there and if you can't talk with friends and family there are folks out there who offer a safe place for you to talk any time you like, in your own way – about whatever’s getting to you. You don’t have to be suicidal.
