The Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership has launched the next phase of its Let’s Keep Talking suicide prevention campaign.
Mental health leaders have teamed up with Rock FM and celebrity-turned-life-coach Jeff Brazier and his podcast Only Human to remind people not to suffer in silence and to keep talking.
As part of the next phase in the campaign which has been running since xxx, people are being urged to become ‘suicide aware’.
Suicide rates across the region are the third highest in England and men are three times more likely to take their life by suicide than women.
Sixty-seven per cent of people who die by suicide are not known to mental health services – and it is the biggest killer of men under 49.
