Talking Saves Lives – Digital Toolkit

Sheffield City Council has worked to create a suicide prevention campaign – Talking Saves Lives, supported by Sheffield Flourish.

The campaign aims to:

  • encourage people to reach out, talk, and seek help if they are struggling with their mental health and/or considering suicide
  • inform those struggling with their mental health and/or at risk of suicide that help is available and signpost people to relevant resources
  • help people understand and recognise the signs of symptoms of depression/stress before it gets to suicidal thoughts
  • educate friends, family, and co-workers on the signs that someone is struggling with their mental health and/or feeling suicidal and empower them to help
  • reduce the stigma attached to mental health struggles and suicide by using clear language

What we’d like from you

We’d like your help to raise awareness of the campaign, so it reaches as many Sheffield people as possible.

We have created a digital toolkit for you, which includes:

  • A4 posters
  • A3 posters
  • Branded images for use online, on social media, and in print
  • Suggested social media posts
