About the campaign

Spot the Signs is a Hertfordshire campaign, aiming to remove the stigma of talking openly about suicide.  It offers suicide awareness training to the voluntary sector, GP’s and businesses’, and signposts anyone struggling with their mental health to support services in Hertfordshire. Spot the Signs is run in partnership with Hertfordshire Mind Network, Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust, Hertfordshire County Council and Mind in Mid Herts. In 2016 Spot the Signs received additional funding to expand the campaign into working with young people, alongside support from CAMHS. Our aim is to make Hertfordshire a county where no one feels suicide is their only option.
