Awareness campaign launched to support people struggling to cope during the pandemic
A series of animations have been released encouraging people to look after themselves, others and to get help early if they are struggling during the pandemic.
During these difficult and stressful times, it is crucial that people look after their mental health and wellbeing.
The North East and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network, in collaboration with suicide prevention charity Every Life Matters Cumbria, have launched its “look after yourself, look out for others, and get help early” awareness campaign with the release of three short animations.
