Get Warrington Talking
Through local events, networking, campaigns and conversations we will create a culture of knowledge and understanding around mental health, mental illness and suicide prevention.
We will strengthen the support networks within the town for people experiencing mental health challenges and endeavour to ensure that everyone can access the help they need when they need it.
If you live or work in Warrington and you have a lived mental health experience, then we want to hear from you. We are keen to grow the number of Get Warrington Talking champions so that we can positively engage with our local communities, challenging stigma and discrimination.
We are always looking to involve new champions in our activities, for more information please contact 01925 246938 / [email protected].

Hope 100 Walk for World Suicide Prevention Day
Warrington’s ‘Hope 100’ walk brings the community together to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.
We believe that through open conversations, active listening, asking questions, supporting people to access help, and challenging stigma around mental health, we can make a difference in Warrington.
The walk provides an opportunity to connect with others, have a conversation, share experiences, support one another or just be silent and take time to reflect, knowing there is someone walking beside you.
