'Seek Support' Edinburgh project update
Hello everyone. I’m Michele, and I am managing this project in Edinburgh. It’s a new outreach approach for us, targeting our messages to men and boys who are at particular risk of harm and suicide.
By working with two major partners – Lothian Buses and Network Rail – we will be able to take our messages right into the heart of the City and into every community. We will reach men and boys who are at most risk of poor mental health and are least likely to seek help, thus putting them at greater risk of suicide. We aim to encourage them to seek help and address their poor mental health to remain well.
We have also adjusted our plants slightly to include the development of an app that will signpost to available support and continue to exist beyond the end of the project, which is great in terms of sustainability of the support provided by this project. It also means support can be accessed by people beyond Edinburgh.
I look forward to sharing more with you as the project progresses.
