Event description
The Orange Button Community Scheme – Tool Kit CUMBRIA & N.LANCS - THIS IS OPEN TO THOSE TRAINED IN ASIST AND SAFETALK.

About this Event

The Orange Button started out in Lancaster, as a way of showing people that may be worried about somebody or themselves, that you have received suicide awareness training and know information around where people can access support. It is an orange pin badge, worn on a lanyard or clothing, as well as an Orange Button window sticker that can be placed in public facing establishments where people have been trained such as shops, café’s and libraries. The aim is to create a community that are suicide aware and can SHOW people that they can help to find information and support if required.

We need your help to;-

- influence the AIM of the scheme

- design the tool kit that people take away with the orange button post training (MHFA, YMHFA, ASIST, SAFETALK, Suicide Alertness etc)

- provide ideas on possible support levels (digital, face-2-face, social media)

- consider evaluation of the scheme
