Zero Suicide Alliance
We are delighted to announce we have joined the Zero Suicide Alliance to help prevent suicide. We will be working in partnership for the world suicide day on 10 September. We feel passionately about ensuring our members are kept safe and supported when they are in crisis. This alliance will help our volunteers to be more informed on how to offer support. We are not clinicians, however peer to peer support is so valuable.
National Voices is the coalition of charities that stands for people being in control of their health and care. Time to Talk Mental Health UK has joined the coalition our aim to support the work they are set up to. We want person-centred care. So, people can have as much control and influence as possible over decisions that affect their own health and care – as patients, carers and members of communities. We want our Charity to be partners in the design of services and partners in research, innovation and improvements.

Bedfordshire and Luton Recovery College is part of the Bedfordshire Mental Health Academy which is a formal partnership with East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) and the University of Bedfordshire.
The college is open to any adults who live or work in Bedfordshire and Luton.

We have joined in partnership with them so that our members from Bedfordshire can take advantage of the services they offer.
