Every year, people in the Black Country die by suicide. Every person who lives here will be affected by suicide at some point in their life. Every effort we make to prevent suicide can make a difference; the difference, to someone, somewhere. Every life matters.
Across the Black Country many of us are working hard to make a difference. There is positive work taking place, but while people in the Black Country still die by suicide, more needs to be done.
The Black Country is a diverse and proud community, living across four local authority boroughs. This can create complexity, but we know our efforts are much stronger when we work together.
On Thursday, 3 February, from 9.30 to 12 noon, Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will be holding a suicide prevention workshop, which is open to organisations, people with lived experience, and advocates from across Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. They want to bring together people who work in health, care, emergency services, local authorities, charities, schools, colleges, universities, sports clubs, businesses, community groups, voluntary organisations and more. The impact of suicide is felt by all of us. The solution to stopping suicide lies with all of us.
The workshop will be held on MS Teams. Please register at bcsuicidepreventionworkshop.eventbrite.co.uk.
Following registration, you will sent a calendar invite.
