Spot the Signs and Save a Life

Let’s all work together to prevent suicide

What is Spot the Signs and Save a Life?

We are a suicide prevention campaign, helping to remove the stigma of talking openly about suicide. We provide training courses and signpost to mental health services available in Hertfordshire.

We aim to:

  • Increase public awareness of depression and suicide in Hertfordshire
  • Remove the stigma linked with suicide
  • Provide suicide prevention training to GPs, healthcare providers and the voluntary sector in Hertfordshire
  • Work with companies to create safer workplaces
  • Signpost to mental health services available in Hertfordshire

Our ambition of zero suicides in Hertfordshire is consistent with the national suicide prevention strategy for England. We also aim to improve support for those bereaved or affected by suicide.

Our vision is to make Hertfordshire a county where no one ever gets to a point where they feel suicide is their only option. Please note that we are not a crisis service.

In an emergency dial 999 or call Samaritans 116 123
