The Waiting Room: This video could save a life

Over 6,000 people die by suicide every year in the UK alone, that’s someone dying by suicide every 90 minutes. But it is well worth remembering that the vast majority of people who think about suicide don’t want to die, they are, however, finding it hard to stay alive. One of the key reasons for this is that they don’t always know what options are out there in their local communities to help them get through their crisis.

Developed in Birmingham by Common Unity for our communities, The Waiting Room Directory and The Waiting Room Resource Key Fob support people in crisis to link with both local and national services that can help them in their time of need.

The success of this intervention has been nothing short of miraculous since it was launched late 2016 this being due to the fact that The Waiting Room is instantly accessible, discreet, up-to-date and gets results.
