New Suicide Prevention leaflet

Berkshire Suicide Prevention Group and the West Berkshire Suicide Action Group have produced a Suicide Prevention leaflet.

It is estimated that every day almost 30 women attempt suicide as a result of experiencing domestic abuse and every week three women take their own lives (Walby, S. (2004), The cost of domestic violence. Women and Equality Unit).

There is some further information around DA and mental health in the Women’s Aid Survivors Handbook - www.womensaid.org.uk/the-survivors-handbook/domestic-abuse-and-your-mental-health/
