People with lived experience of self-harm and/or suicide wanted to form Lived Experience Network.

CHAMPS (Cheshire & Merseyside Partnership) along with Wirral Mind are looking to recruit local people who have been affected by Suicide to form a Lived Experience Network.  There is a lot of brilliant work ongoing to prevent Suicide, but the area these organisations know they need to engage more with is those with lived experience.

What is the Lived Experience Network about?

The LEN is about giving people with lived experience of self-harm and/or suicide a voice. Whether you have had thoughts of suicide or have made attempts, have self-harmed or had thoughts of harming yourself, if you have been bereaved by suicide, or have been affected in any other way, your experiences are important.

The LEN aims to bring together a group of people across the region with a range of experiences to co-develop and co-deliver on the aims of the NO MORE Suicide strategy. There are different ways you may be able to get involved including reading and commenting on proposed strategy documents, attending focus groups, attending the NO MORE Suicide Partnership Board, task groups, Local Authority meetings, or taking part in specific workshops influencing a particular piece of work.

If you have any questions please direct them to Wirral Mind; learning@wirralmind.org.uk or call: 0151 512 2200.
