It can quickly help guide someone in crisis through the different kinds of support available including third sector support, telephone helplines and NHS services. The new resource was profiled in the Yorkshire Evening Post’s World Mental Health Day special

These new resources were promoted by Leeds Suicide Bereavement Service on Look North in their top news item marking World Mental Health Day.
