Weʼre raising £10,000 to publish suicide prevention book - ‘Don’t Do It - Let’s Talk Suicide, Prevention, Intervention, Recovery and Innovative Treatments’
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi, I‘m Angelica Ashbrook Heyworth and I have been a crisis negotiator and a suicide intervention and recovery specislist for 12 years - voluntary. My work is in so much demand it has left me with no time to do paid work. I have almost finished writing my book called Don’t Do It - Lets Talk Suicide, Prevention, Intervention, Recovery and Innovative Treatments. I now need to get it publish on to a website so everyone world wide has access free of charge to self-help recovery from suicidal ideation, panic attacks, anxiety, depression, PTSD, CPTSD etc. To have it done professionally, it will cost around £10,000 to include proof reading, designing, editing Etc...
Just over 250 families in the 12 years I’ve been operating, mostly throughout the UK, still have their loved ones here. Can you imagine how many more can be saved from suicide if only they knew they could choose life, or they could spot the early signs or symptoms, or they understood that their debilitating and enduring anxiety can be treated as its not just psychological but also environmental and/or physilogical and therefore recoverable. And what about the loved ones having to helplessley watch someone suffer to poor mental health and suicide when my book teaches how to intercept and help that person recover.
I would love to just be able to get my book out for everyone, but I simply do not have the funds, as the years rolled by, my time was more in demand, which has stopped me earning. I now just want to get my work out there, so you can all help yourselves and each other, and I can go back to a paid job.
Thank you in advance. Angelica
