Open Minds Alliance CIC is a not-for-profit organisation formed to develop and deliver training packages for a range of sectors, including healthcare, social care, statutory bodies and communities. These include ‘Connecting with People’ a bite-size suicide awareness and prevention package.

We have since developed resources and training for young people, different types of professionals and the wider community.

We have developed a range of compassionate public education resources with our collaborators for the Royal College of Psychiatrists, these include the leaflets:

•’U Can Cope’ designed to help young people develop the ability to cope with difficulties in their life.
•‘Feeling overwhelmed: helping you stay safe’ for anybody struggling to cope when bad things happen in their life.
•‘Feeling on the edge: helping you get through it’ designed for people in distress attending the Emergency Department following self harm or with suicidal thoughts.
