East Yorkshire residents encouraged to do suicide prevention training

The Humber, Coast and Vale Mental Health Partnership has launched the #TalkSuicide campaign.

Residents in East Yorkshire are being encouraged, to take part in an online suicide prevention training programme.

The 20-minute programme helps people to spot the signs that someone is experiencing suicidal thoughts.

Chris Wainham, the deputy head of Hull Collegiate School in Anlaby, says: "This just gives people the pointers of what to do, and how to address it, and basically just to start talking about it, rather than avoiding it as a taboo subject."

The Humber, Coast and Vale Mental Health Partnership has launched the #TalkSuicide campaign.

Carol Lavelle lost her son to suicide and is involved in the project.

She says: "You're duty bound to care for one another, we need to be a bit more caring.

She added: "This would really promote that, take a bit of responsibility and do the training."
