Why not join us?
WE ARE: DEDICATED.
We live in unprecedented times – first COVID and now the cost of living crisis is taking its toll on our nation’s mental health and the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society have paid the highest price.
The alliance is a network of voluntary and statutory organisation, individuals and businesses working together with one common cause – to support anyone who needs help, to create a mentally healthy Dorset.
A critical part of our work is suicide prevention. We won’t rest until nobody in Dorset believes suicide is the only option.
We are the Dorset Community Mental Health Alliance – Working together for Dorset’s wellbeing.

If you or someone else is in serious risk of death or injury, call 999 and ask for the police and / or an ambulance
Help save a life
Public Health England has produced an in-depth training course on suicide prevention. It takes around two hours to complete, but doesn’t have to be completed in one session.
Can you spare 30 mins to save a life? Our partners, the Zero Suicide Alliance has put together this brilliant training video, which helps us all know what to do if we encounter someone in crisis.
What Our Members Say
The organisations that belong to the alliance reach out to thousands of people across Dorset to improve their mental health and help them live happier lives.
