Proud members of Zero Suicide Alliance
The Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) aims to empower, educate, and equip individuals and organisations to support suicide awareness and prevention. They are UK based and hosted by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust Charity.
The Global Compassion Coalition believe that compassion gives us the strength, wisdom, and courage to attend to suffering, build bridges, and diffuse conflict. It increases our own and other people’s happiness, fosters connection, and provides meaning.
Imagine if that power could be harnessed. Imagine if we could inspire individuals, organisations, and governments to act from a place of compassion, to attend to suffering, and build communities of care and belonging. This is the job of the Global Compassion Coalition.

Treatments for PTSD
It is possible for PTSD to be successfully treated many years after the traumatic event occurred, which means it is never too late to seek help. For some, the first step may be watchful waiting, then exploring therapeutic options such as individual or group therapy – but the main treatment options in the UK are psychological treatments such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Traumatic events can be very difficult to come to terms with, but confronting and understanding your feelings and seeking professional help is often the only way of effectively treating PTSD. You can find out more in the links below, or here.
