Joy Hibbins

Joy Hibbins runs the Suicide Crisis Centre in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. An Oxford University graduate who experienced a suicidal crisis herself in 2012, she was unable to find the kind of help she needed, so she set up a Centre to provide a different type of care from what was currently available. In 2016 Joy was invited to give oral evidence about the Suicide Crisis Centre to the Parliamentary Health Select Committee. She was also asked by the Government’s adviser on suicide to present to the national advisory group which he chairs. She recently received a letter from 10 Downing Street, thanking Suicide Crisis for their “excellent work” and describing the Crisis Centre as an example of “best practice”. Shadow Ministers from the Labour party and Lib Dems have been equally supportive. The work of the Suicide Crisis Centre has been featured on national television news and in national and international newspapers.
