A number of charities will be offering advice, guidance and support at hospitals in Gloucestershire as part of World Suicide Prevention Day.

Winston's Wish, Samaritans and Suicide Crisis will be among the groups at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and Cheltenham General Hospital.

Each organisation will have a 30 minute slot to speak in the chapel at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital from 11am-2pm and will be on hand to answer questions afterwards.

There will also be an area in the chapel for quiet reflection and candles will be available for people to light in memory of loved ones.

At Cheltenham General Hospital, representatives from the charities will be available between 12-2pm. The events are free and there is no need to book.
