Spot the Signs - Save a Life workshops 10th Sept

Spot the Signs & Save a Life campaign would like to invite the general public, including service users and carers, for a free 2 hour workshop in Stevenage and Watford on World Suicide Prevention Day falling on the 10th of September 2016. Alongside the workshops, we would like to invite all individuals and organisations to join our online thunderclap campaign (via Twitter, Facebook or Tumbler) to raise awareness and break the stigma around suicide.

Please could you kindly disseminate this to any individuals you feel would be interested. If you would like to advertise our workshops/ online media campaign, please do not hesitate to use the attached posters. The focus of our workshops will be to bust myths, signs of suicide and depression and to advise of the referral process in Hertfordshire. Individuals can sign up to our workshops via Eventbrite.
