SPIIOW - SUICIDE PREVENTION & INTERVENTION ARE AN INDEPENDENT ORGANISATION BASED ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT. WE HAVE A FRONT LINE TEAM TRAINED IN SUICIDE (CRISIS) INTERVENTION WHO ARE AVAILABLE 365 DAYS A YEAR, 24 HOURS A DAY.
When a person feels that they want to end their life from suicide and when time is the key to survival our front line team will immediately act to intervene. This could be a person’s home address or other locations across the Island and secondly by continuing to support those in need.
We are always looking at how people at risk look to assess support and ask for help - our 24/7 phone & text service is a great option as is our 24/7 live chat on our website but we are now looking to offer a different way for people at risk to get that support.
We fully understand that every person has a chosen charity or origination who they already support - but we are just asking for £1.00 from 2,000 people to reach our target - if people very kindly donated more money we would like to buy PPE for our front line team - if this is OK?
