Feeling hopeless? Lost and alone? Thinking about suicide? Wondering what is the point in going on?

At ‘In Charley’s Memory’ we want to help you.

You are not alone, even if it feels like it right now. Many people have felt like there is no point in going on and have thought about suicide as a way to end the unbearable pain they are feeling. However these feelings and thoughts can change. Suicide is a permanent solution to those temporary feelings.

If you have other concerns with your mental health – perhaps you are anxious or depressed or lacking in confidence – these are all issues that we can help support you with too.

At ‘In Charley’s Memory’ we can help you in lots of ways;

  • We can listen to you – in person, over the phone or if you want to message us.
  • We can offer you 1-2-1 counselling, so you can work through your feelings with your counsellor, in a safe, supportive space.
  • We can offer you various courses and workshops that will help you understand more about your own mental health and how best to support it.
  • We can signpost you to other groups and sources of support.

Please contact us, and give us a chance to work with you and support you.
