​Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Hope Project. We've been adding all your contributions to our website and sharing our lists of hope across our channels. This will be a growing project that can be added to and shared all year round so please share anything that gives you hope by email to You can find our new hope pages here:

Suicide prevention isn't just something that happens today but today acts as an opportunity to come together as staff, patients, organisations, communities to talk about how working together, we can help to prevent suicide.

Over the next month we'll be talking more about suicide prevention as part of our Month of Hope. Through our different communication channels we'll be sharing information to help tackle stigma, signpost to information and resources, celebrate the excellent work happening in our Trust and more.

This year we're delighted to welcome our new Suicide Prevention Lead, Katie Donnelly. Katie has done a short video to introduce herself and talk more about the work she'll be doing to support suicide prevention at our Trust.



If you've been affected by suicide, either through personal or professional circumstances, please reach out for support.
