Projects Overview

As part of our community work, we have secured funding and developed various projects that fit our charity's core beliefs about suicide and suicide prevention. We provide people with the skills and confidence needed to save lives through our innovation and thought-provoking campaigns. But that’s not all. We make change through projects focused on enabling life-saving conversations in the community.
