As a Police Force, we are often the last resort in a mental health crisis, and we see people when they are at their lowest. Last year Lincolnshire Police attended 89 suspected suicides across the county.
We are working with our partners across Lincolnshire so that it doesn’t get to this stage, and that people can get the mental health support they need when they need it. The theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day is ‘Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.’
Here are some stats from the World Health Organisation:
We can all play a part in supporting family, friends and colleagues who may be struggling. The first step is reaching out to them, these can be really difficult conversations to have but asking about their mental health and wellbeing gives them the opportunity to open up and you could save a life.
We know that times are tough, and the cost-of-living crisis will have an impact on so many people. You are not alone in this, and there is support and guidance available whether you are looking for support for yourself, or a loved one.
Financial advice and support for everyone, not just those living in Lincoln city.
