New volunteers join suicide awareness campaign

It Takes Balls To Talk has kicked off the new season with enthusiastic new additions to its team of volunteers.

Determined to get men talking about their mental health, the latest intake of volunteers for the suicide awareness campaign were formally trained at the first session of its kind in the It Takes Balls to Talk campaign.

The two-hour event took place at the Council House in Coventry city centre on August 21 and proved hugely successful with positive feedback received and the new volunteers commenting on how confident they now felt talking about suicide, feelings and mental health.

Some of the new volunteers will be at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena for the Wasps vs Harlequins fixture on Sunday, September 17. Watch out for them in their yellow Balls to Talk t-shirts!

How would you like to get involved?

The campaign is keen to welcome more volunteers to help raise public awareness about suicide and encourage people, particularly men, to talk about how they feel.
