Supporting someone feeling suicidal
Suicide prevention is everyone’s business. Many people who decide to die by suicide don’t have any contact with services. Therefore it is important that we all do everything we can to support each other in the community.
We are looking for people who have lots of contacts in the community to help us with suicide prevention. Taxi drivers, sports therapists, hairdressers, pub landlords, bar staff, shop workers, tattooists, teachers and youth workers (and many more) are just some of the people who are able to signpost people to the right help and support as they need it.
Our free, simple and quick guide to suicide prevention has everything you need to support the people around you. This is being developed together with people who have personal experience of suicide. The guide should be ready in December 2017.
