Trust Your Instinct booklet published – 20th July 2017

We work with Manchester people every day, so our Trust your instinct booklet aims to help you know what to say and do when you see things are not going well.

The earlier the help, the less likely things are to get worse, and the better things will be for the person, family and community. Seeing a sign that something is seriously wrong and knowing what to do could actually prevent a tragedy.

The guide lists some things you could see that show things might not be going well for somebody, and it explains why it’s important to take notice and Trust your instinct
