Shine On is an ongoing campaign bringing together people and organisations across South Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset to tackle the issue of suicide and raise awareness of the support available. The campaign is led by the Independent Mental Health Network.
Suicide is a complex issue.
We believe that by working together to educate and raise awareness, we can make a difference.
*** Have you got an idea for a project, activity, or initiative? Will your idea raise awareness about, or prevent, suicide? Are you an individual or part of a community group? ***
The Suicide Prevention Innovation Fund can help by providing seed funding.
The campaign has delivered events, panel discussions, and film screenings.
The Suicide Prevention Innovation Fund, which is a grant scheme supporting individuals and community organisations to deliver their own initiative tackling suicide, has funded eight projects so far and remains open.
The Suicide Prevention Summit took place on Monday 13 January 2020, with over 140 people from a range of backgrounds coming together to identify a way to move forward together with work tackling suicide locally.
