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.’
Every 45 seconds someone in the world takes their own life.
For each suicide approximately 135 people suffer intense grief or are otherwise affected.
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.
Help, support and guidance
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.
