Stepping Stones

Support for people presenting at A&E after possible suicide attempt or self-harm

Please note: referrals can only be made by A&E staff.

Stepping Stones is a prevention service that supports residents of Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield.

The aim of the service is to reduce suicide and admission rates to A&E in relation to self-harm and suicide attempts.

Support is for people aged 18+. We can also support that person’s network, for example, friends, family and carers. The network support can include people under the age of 18.

The service draws on the peer support model, with staff using lived experience and a person-centred approach.

Support sessions will include: coping skills, reflective thinking, liaising with other support organisations, reducing risk and signposting.
