Preventative Education & Training

Suicide is a community problem, and everyone can help. Through awareness presentations & campaigns, evidence-based training, education & workshops we aim to provide our local community with the knowledge and skills to help reduce the number of deaths by suicide.

Shine a Light on Suicide & Prevention

We will come to your workplace, school, college, or community group to deliver our suicide awareness presentation. The aims of the presentation are to:

  • introduce the charity and why we were founded
  • raise awareness of suicide and the alarming numbers in our region
  • provide information about the services offered by the Headlight Project
  • introduce actions for a suicide safer community and workplace
  • provide information about further training opportunities

We do not make a charge for this presentation. However, as a charity we would appreciate any donation to help us in our mission.

Turn Blue Monday Bright – Our Annual Awareness Campaign

This is a free awareness campaign that takes place on the third Monday in January. We encourage all schools, workplaces, and community organisations to be involved and provide support materials and guidance to everyone taking part.

The third Monday in January has become known as Blue Monday, due to the combination of cold weather, dark nights, and post-Christmas blues, leading to an increase in mental health issues which can lead to suicide. The aim of the day is to give people a reason to smile, and to remind them of the little things they can do to feel better. Within schools it helps to embed the message to children about talking about their feelings and where to go to if things are troubling them. We hope it gives everyone a reason to smile that day and encourages people to talk.

If you choose to include an element of fundraising that is entirely at your discretion but not a condition of taking part.
