When you feel there is nowhere to turn, nobody who will help, nothing that can be done – you feel like you’re a burden and it feels like there are only 2 options. Things stay as they are or you die. STOP! THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION – you just can’t see it, you don’t believe it exists but it does. There is another way – you can reach out, accept help and together we can help you find a way to heal. If you do this there are paths to a different life. Different to where you are right now – different to what you believe about your self and the world around you.
You might be thinking nobody will believe you. We will believe you. You might be thinking nobody can help. We can help you. You might be thinking nobody will listen or understand. We will hear you – we understand.
Experiencing abuse or a false accusation can leave you feeling broken, angry, devastated, anxious, confused, humiliated, embarrassed or depressed. It is not uncommon for victims of abuse or false allegation to feel incredibly ashamed about what has happened to them. You may start to question everything around you and feel quite alone.
If you, or someone you know is struggling. Whoever you are. It doesn’t have to be this way. Reaching out takes strength but you’re not alone. Please – let us help you.

World Suicide Prevention Day
Male suicide accounts for the bulk of all suicides in the UK, with rates more than three times higher than female suicide rates, at 18.2 deaths compared with 5.2 female deaths per 100,000 population. The highest rate of suicide was seen in men aged 40 to 44 years of age.
Men are significantly less likely to reach out for help. If someone you know is struggling – help them to reach out. Let them know – there is another way.
