We believe suicide is a tragedy, one with devastating and widespread effects.
Suicide prevention is a national area of importance where local councils in England are encouraged to take a proactive leadership role. In Leeds, suicide prevention is a key public mental health priority.
As a city, we are working hard to reduce suicides with significant areas of best practice. We are happy to share what we know with other councils and organisations, as well as learn from others, so we can play our part in reducing suicide risk in Leeds and elsewhere.
Resources for anyone feeling low, distressed or suicidal
If you feel like you’ve had enough, it’s okay to ask for help.
In Leeds we have a range of resources for people who are feeling low, distressed or suicidal to help get support from local services.
