MeeTwo

50% of adult mental health issues manifest by the age of 14 and suicide is the leading cause of death in young people. Existing provision can’t cope and 61% of GP referrals to child and adolescent mental health services are rejected. We’ve developed a safe, cost-effective early intervention which has been proven to stop anxiety escalating. The MeeTwo app encourages young people to help themselves by helping each other. Turning difficult life experiences, into useful advice for someone else who is struggling, increases confidence and builds resilience. MeeTwo is a beautifully simple solution to a complex social problem.

The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Education & Training CIC


We are one of the UK’s leading international providers of suicide prevention education and training programmes


“Dedicated to Positve Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Education”

We have offices in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast.


The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Education & Training CIC is a community interest company and not-for-profit social enterprise, created by a consultancy of experienced international trainers in the field of suicide prevention, founded in 2011.


We have been working in the UK to build suicide-safer communities for many years and in recognition of the lack of dedicated resources to suicide prevention training programmes, we created a formal international initiative, on a not-for-profit basis.


The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Education & Training UK CIC is proud to have forged and developed lasting collaborative relationships with many of the UK’s leading suicide prevention specialists, all sharing the common beliefs, values and hope, that suicide, is one the the most preventable deaths.


Community Interest Companies (CIC) are Limited companies, with special additional features, created for the use of people who want to conduct a business or other activity for community benefit, and not for private advantage.


This is achieved by a “community interest test” and “asset lock”, which ensure that the CIC is established for community purposes and the assets and profits are dedicated to these purposes. Registration of a company as a CIC has to be approved by the Regulator who also has a continuing monitoring and enforcement role.
