About the STOP Suicide Pledge

The STOP Suicide Pledge seeks to encourage organisations and individuals across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to make a commitment to themselves and members of their community in relation to talking more openly about suicide and helping those in distress.

The Pledge will be a key element in our campaign to create a suicide-safer Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. 

The Organisational Pledge invites organisations – be they businesses, schools & colleges, community groups or public service providers – to sign up to promoting the STOP Suicide message throughout their organisation by encouraging staff/volunteers and customers to make the personal STOP Suicide Pledge; to look after their wellbeing; to be open and honest when life gets difficult and to reach out to

others and ask directly about suicide if they are worried about them. The Individual Pledge asks individuals to tell someone if they are struggling and need help; reach out to others who are struggling; listen non-judgementally to individuals who are in distress; ask directly about suicide if they are worried about someone and help anyone who is struggling and/or thinking about suicide to get help.

Don’t feel you can pledge?

Unsure about pledging just yet? Read more about what to do if you’re feeling suicidal or how to help someone feeling suicidal. Once you feel ready to pledge, you can always come back to it.

There are a range of downloadable resources available to support your Pledge. You can also get your Pledge Card, information leaflets and “I’d Ask” badge from our campaign stalls and events or, in person, from many of the campaign partners (see Resources and information for more details).
