What is growing hope?

The Wellways Growing Hope toolkit offers helpful information and advice that can be used when you or someone you know needs support to stay safe.

The toolkit includes information on what signs to look for in yourself and others that may signal it is important to seek support. As well as information that may be helpful when speaking to young people about suicide.

In addition, there are some practical tips on how to look after yourself and others by practising self-care.

This resource is not intended for everyday use, but we hope that it will assist individuals and families when they need it.
