Who We Are

We Care About Your Mental Health.

Here at EPiC HOPE, we are driven to do our part in making the world a better place. Since 2022, we have been planning a way that we can drive real change for suicide prevention and intervention.

Please help us continue our work

Our

MISSION

Our mission is to create suicide safer communities by identifying and supporting those in crisis, nurturing an inclusive environment of compassion where every person can share, connect, and find hope and healing, without stigma.

We are dedicated to empowering community members with the skills to save lives and to building a network of understanding and resources that assists anyone touched by suicide.

Our

VALUES

We value life. Everybody’s life.

Our core values are rooted in compassion, connection, and courage. We believe in the power of empathy to understand and support those in pain. We value the strength of community and the importance of building meaningful connections to combat isolation. We champion the courage it takes to reach out, to speak openly about struggles, and to stand together in the face of adversity. Education, respect, and inclusivity guide our actions as we strive to create communities where every life is valued and every cry for help is heard and answered.

Our

VISION

Our vision is a future where every person in our boroughs recognises their inherent value and feels a steadfast sense of hope and connection.

We strive to establish a compassionate society where the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide is eradicated, and open conversations and support systems are the norm, leading to a zero-suicide reality.

We are committed to equipping individuals, communities, and institutions with the resources, education, and support needed to prevent suicide and to nurture strength, understanding, and the preservation of life at every opportunity.

What We Do

We Support.

EPiC HOPE is dedicated to creating supportive communities where mental health is a shared responsibility. Our Harbours, located throughout Wigan and Leigh, are more than safe spaces; they are active centres for connection. Recognising the urgency in areas with increased suicide rates, we also take our efforts directly into the community, ensuring no one is overlooked.

 

Our resources are readily available for everyone. Whether you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts, or want to help someone who is. With our straightforward, free materials, you can learn to detect distress and offer meaningful support, guiding yourself or others towards appropriate care.

 

Access these tools online or pick them up at your nearest EPiC HOPE Harbour. By equipping ourselves with knowledge and compassion, we can all contribute to a mentally healthier and suicide safer community.

Bill's Skydive – Taking A Skydive Hoping To Save Lives

Our dear friend, Bill, is taking on an incredible challenge! He’s skydiving from 15,000 feet! But this isn’t just an adventure for Bill, it’s a leap of faith to support a cause that’s close to all our hearts. Bill’s journey to this skydive has been nothing short of inspiring. Over the past few months, he has worked tirelessly to lose weight to make this skydive possible. His dedication and determination have been mind-blowing and it’s because he’s so passionate about doing what he can to prevent any more suicides.

 

EPiC HOPE’s mission is to provide continual and free, resources, support, and advocacy for those struggling with suicidal thoughts, and their loved ones. We believe in the power of community, and that together, we can make a difference and save lives. Any donation, no matter how big or small, will go a long way in supporting our cause. Your donation will directly impact our ability to provide these critical services, reach more people, and ultimately, prevent suicide.

 

By supporting Bill in his skydiving challenge, you are not just helping him conquer his fears; you are providing hope and help to those who need it most. Let’s make a difference together. Please consider donating and sharing this message far and wide. Together, we can support Bill, honour the memory of those we’ve lost too soon, and bring hope to those who need it most.

Thank you for your time, your generosity, and your support. We’re all in this together.
