Suicide prevention

This page is dedicated to helping professionals and members of the public to understand the importance of suicide prevention. Our aim is not only to reduce suicides but also support families bereaved by suicide and those most vulnerable.

The resources below, we hope, will increase wider awareness and ways to get further help.
