Stay in the sun when the sunshine is gone, and you will find that the sunshine lives within you.



Sunflowers are not a crisis service.


If you are worried about your own, or someone else's suicidal thoughts or feelings, take the following action!


For an emergency or life threatening situation ALWAYS call 999


For other Mental Health concerns make an URGENT appointment with your GP
