LIFE cards

Southern Health have produced LIFE cards as part of our suicide and self-harm prevention work. These are credit card size and can discreetly fit into wallets, phone pouches, pockets or hand bags. This means that people can have direct access to advice, help and support when they need it. 

Front of the life card

The front of the card is branded ‘every life matters’ and does not mention suicide so it can be discreetly placed face up in wallets, card holders or phone pouches.

Back of the cards

On the back of the card is vital information aimed to signpost people to key tools and organisations that can offer support and advice to anyone who needs it.

The organisations listed to the right of the card focuses on prevention and all organisations and apps listed are approved by Grass Roots Suicide Prevention, a charity that supports communities to prevent suicide.
