Over 6,000 people took their own life in the UK in 2015.
Most people who die by suicide are not in contact with mental health services – they are right here in our community.
We developed the 90 minute Real Talk session with real people in the community to help them talk openly and honestly about what is one of the most taboo subjects in the world today.
In fact, talking about suicide is the best way we know to prevent suicide.
We know this is something that people find hard to talk about. So Real Talk offers an opportunity for people to gain the skills and confidence in talking about suicide and to start feeling comfortable with the language and the feelings that come up.
This takes courage – courage that we all have.
Real Talk makes it easier for you to help start conversations. Conversations that could quite literally make the difference between life and death.
Upcoming Real Talk courses
Please note: The Real Talk events so far have been fantastic, and we want to keep improving. We’re currently developing the Real Talk workshop to make it even better. We will be hosting new sessions in the near future.
