Reach Out North East magazine

RONE4Issue 4 of Reach Out North East (January 2015)

This issue is aimed at young people aged 14 plus to help raise awareness and give information about suicide and young people. Due to the very sensitive nature of this subject the RONE group worked with members from If U Care Share Foundation’s Youth Panel . MHNE would like to commend both of these groups of young people for their hard work on this particular issue and we would also like to thank Shirley Smith, If U Care Share Foundation, for her constant support in ensuring the publication was both accurate and appropriately worded.

Previous issues: here's Issue 1, Issue 2 and Issue 3.
