A series of animations have been released encouraging people to
look after themselves, others and to get help early if they are
struggling during the pandemic.
During these difficult and stressful times, it is crucial that
people look after their mental health and wellbeing.
The North East and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network, in
collaboration with suicide prevention charity Every Life Matters
Cumbria, have launched its "look after yourself, look out for
others, and get help early" awareness campaign with the release of
three short animations.

resource for the UK, packed full of useful
information and tools to help you stay safe in crisis. You can use
it if you are having thoughts of suicide or if you are concerned
about someone else who may be considering suicide.
We provide confidential support and advice to young people
struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a
young person through our helpline, HOPELINEUK.
