'Shining a light on suicide' - launch of new GM wide campaign

A new campaign has been launched to encourage people in Greater Manchester to talk about suicide, the biggest killer of men under 49 and women aged between 20 to 34 in the region.

Commissioned by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and supported by the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and all the partners including NHS, councils, police, fire, emergency services, armed forces’ veterans, voluntary and community groups, the campaign will inform people across Greater Manchester’s ten boroughs what can be done to help those with suicidal thoughts – while ensuring they are signposted to support organisations.

The ‘Shining a Light on Suicide’ campaign, which will be delivered across Greater Manchester over the coming months, will collaborate with a network of stakeholder organisations, the media and use social media to ensure communities in all ten boroughs are targeted.
