Luciana Berger, Shadow Minister for Mental Health, Speaks About Our Suicide Crisis Centre

Thank you very much to Luciana Berger, the Shadow Minister for Mental Health, who visited our Suicide Crisis Centre yesterday, the 7th January 2016. In the interview that she gave to BBC Radio Gloucestershire about our Crisis Centre, she said:-

“I think it reflects incredibly well on this service in particular that for every person who has come through their door, no one has gone on to take their own life.That’s particularly significant and so it’s very clear that this service is needed. I just hope that as many people that need this service are able to access this or know about it. This is essentially a charity that’s providing this service for free and isn’t being funded by anyone.”

And a massive thank you to one of our male clients who was also interviewed for the radio programme, and who commented:-

“If this service hadn’t have existed, I know I wouldn’t still be here. It’s as simple as that.”

Thank you to Sybil Ruscoe, the presenter, who commented that our charity “has been described as one of the most pioneering and inspirational charities working in the mental health field”.
