Preventing Suicide – Essential Guidance


Suicide prevention isn’t only issue for professionals. What do you do, what do you say , if you suspect that someone you are with is feeling suicidal? It could be a friend, a family member, a colleague, someone you volunteer to support. Whoever it is, it’s a difficult situation.
The attached guidance provides information and support to help you if you find yourself in this position. It is designed to help whether you’re a professional or not. Remember though that if you’re a professional you should ensure that you are aware of the guidance and/or instructions from your professional body and if you’re a volunteer it is important to talk this through with your volunteer co-ordinator or support worker.
