Suicide is preventable, not inevitable.

In 2017, in the UK and Ireland alone, over 6,000 people died of suicide. Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy.

We know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable. But not being okay is still widely stigmatised. We work hard every day to address this and support all those impacted by mental health. 

This year, on this day, we are announcing our latest service to support those impacted by suicide. Working in partnership with South West London Health and Care Partnership, we are announcing a dedicated service to support people bereaved by suicide. Our new Post Suicide Liaison Worker will work with a range of local services to better support family members. If you’d like to know more or apply for the role please contact [email protected]

On Sunday 22nd, an intrepid group of adventurers from Careys Plc scaled not one, not two but THREE UK mountains to support BWW Mind. The group consisted of Alahna, Paul Moran, Patrick Corcoran, Amy Morgan, Craig K De Sloan, Luke Spencer, Sean Sugrue and Rachel Penfold.

They battled wind, snow, rain and blazing sunshine as they trekked their way up Scafell Pike, Mount Snowdon and Ben Nevis in support of BWW Mind as part of the Three Peaks Challenge. (more…)
