Start a Conversation

Start a Conversation is the mental health and suicide prevention campaign for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. It is delivered by Public Health at Leicestershire County Council for everyone to use. The campaign, including website, aims to use the power of our communities to support people with their mental health. A big part of this includes increasing the number of open and honest conversations that happen about mental health and suicide.

By sharing reliable information and promoting talking more and openly about mental health and suicide, we hope people will become more aware, face less stigma and discrimination, and be supported to help themselves or seek help from around them, ultimately saving lives.

Our website provides:

  • Reliable information
  • Advice on challenging stigma
  • Signposting to self and local help
  • Resources to support conversations and raise awareness
  • Training to upskill
  • Ways to get involved

The website acts as a hub of information and can spring board you off to other key websites and organisations across Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland including Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, First Contact Plus, JOY, Live Well etc.
