Orange Button SchemeCare and support, Health and wellbeing, Information, advice and guidance, Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
People who are having thoughts of suicide, or who are worried about a friend or family member, can now “push the button” when they see someone wearing a distinctive orange badge, and ask them for information and support.
The Orange Button is worn by people in Somerset who have undergone quality assured Mental Health or Suicide Prevention training: whilst they are not able to counsel people, they can help you to find relevant services locally.
The Orange Button signifies that the person displaying it is:
- OK to say/hear the word suicide
- Can listen without judgement
- Can support people with signposting
