Lighthouse

It provides a ‘beacon of hope’ to individuals, families, and communities as well as providing preventative and support services, and aims to save lives, offer advice and support those affected by suicide and self-harm. Lighthouse also works to remove the stigma associated with suicide and mental health issues through education and awareness activities which promote positive mental health.
