Preventing suicide in Solihull

Preventing suicide in Solihull

Solihull Zero Suicide Pledge logo

Suicide is a tragedy for those that take their own life and for their family and friends. We want to prevent this tragedy from happening so our long-term ambition is to achieve zero suicides in Solihull.

Everybody has a role in preventing suicide so we are encouraging individuals and organisations to sign up to our ‘Solihull Zero Suicide Pledge’.

By signing the Pledge, you are making a commitment to look after family, friends and colleagues; become more aware of any concerning changes and ask if they are ok.

You are also agreeing to take short online training to help you spot the warning signs in others and signpost them to help.

If you are over the age of 16 please sign the Pledge.

If you are an organisation you can Pledge too.
