How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
As a primary care organisation we see patients on a regular basis with mental health and social issues. We need to recognise patients with moderate or severe mental health problems who could be at risk from attempted or actual suicide.
What are your current priorities?
Priorities are more suicide prevention training, support and access to information on strategies for suicide prevention together with sharing good practice opportunities.
What challenges are you currently facing?
We are an inner city practice with a large patient population with mental health, drug, alcohol and homelessness challenges.
