What is Spot the Signs and Save a Life?
We are a suicide prevention campaign, helping to remove the stigma of talking openly about suicide. We provide training courses and signpost to mental health services available in Hertfordshire.
Our ambition of zero suicides in Hertfordshire is consistent with the national suicide prevention strategy for England. We also aim to improve support for those bereaved or affected by suicide. We aim to:
- Increase public awareness of depression and suicide and remove the stigma linked with suicide
- Provide suicide prevention training to GPs, healthcare providers and the voluntary sector in Hertfordshire
- Work with companies to create safer workplaces
- Signpost to mental health services available in Hertfordshire
Let’s all work together to prevent suicide
Our vision is to make Hertfordshire a county where no one ever gets to a point where they feel suicide is their only option. Take the Positive Action Pledge by clicking here Let’s all help to prevent suicide
Please note that we are not a crisis service
Stay Alive App
The Stay Alive App, developed by Grass Roots is now available in Hertfordshire. It has tools to help keep people safe in times of crisis and details of the emergency or support services to contact in Hertfordshire. You can use it if you are experiencing difficulties with your mental health or having thoughts of suicide, or if you are concerned about someone else who may be considering suicide.
