LISTEN: Lauretta Kavanagh has helped organise the Suicide Prevention Conference in Maidstone - 14/05/2019

May 14, 2019, 10:10 AM

Mental health groups and organisations from across #Kent are gathering #Maidstone today for a suicide prevention conference.

Local authorities, emergency services, healthcare professionals and charities are getting together to talk about how best to support people who're in crisis.

The event will hear about programmes that have been given government funding, including a walking group, buddy schemes and a new song called 'Living Words' which is based on the experiences of people from #Folkestone who have previously tried to take their own lives.

Lauretta Kavanagh helped organise it.
