Orange Button - Suicide can affect anybody and there isn’t a community in Somerset where people haven’t been touched by suicide. Whether a hospital staff member or an owner of a local shop, we can all make a difference in reaching out and offering support to those in need. We know that if someone is having suicidal thoughts, receiving support from someone else can make a big difference. Only a minority of people, who died by suicide, are known to mental health services. We need to raise awareness within our community and spread the message that talking to someone in distress won’t make the situation worse.
