Suicide Prevention Information Leaflet: When suicide is on your mind, stay connected stay safe

Public health Suffolk has created a suicide prevention information leaflet aimed at supporting those who are experiencing suicidal thoughts.  It is essential that people have access to the correct information, and resources that will help them when they are feeling desperate and unsafe.

The A4 leaflet is in two forms:

  • Digital
  • Print-at-home version

Please feel free to share with your network/service users as needed, either via email, social media or on your organisation website, having regard to the sensitive nature of the content. 

If you would like some professionally printed copies of the leaflet, please provide us with the following information, and we will send them to you as soon as possible email Louise.Biddiscombe@suffolk.gov.uk:

  • Number of copies required
  • Full postal address of where you would like them to be sent
