Christmas Appeal

Every two hours, someone in England and Wales takes their own life. This can't go on.

Lloyd Homepage Banner

Lloyd was the kindest person you'd ever meet. His treatment was so badly handled. He felt he was a burden. It broke my heart.

We're determined that in 2019 more people will get the help they need before they reach breaking point. The families of Lloyd, Jessie, Paul, Ruth and Niall have bravely shared their stories with us in support of our Christmas appeal.

Will you fight with us for everyone to get the support they need?
