“Be the one” campaign aims to prevent deaths

A new joint campaign between Rotherham Council and our local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been launched to raise awareness of the steps we can all take to “Be the One” to save a life and prevent suicide.

Sadly we know that our own community has been touched by suicide over the last few years, which is why we have supported efforts to get people the help and support that they need. But we also know that more people still need that support.

The moving video (above) and a new website – www.be-the-one.co.uk – have been produced to help to signpost those that need it towards services, but also asks businesses and individuals to make their own commitment, and to be aware of how they can help someone in who is facing a crisis.

As the website says, we must all learn how to look out for one another and do our bit to help those in distress.
