Our aim is to support improvement in quality, patient care and outcomes.
How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
We run conferences focusing on suicide prevention, self-harm, mental health crisis care and depression. All programmes involve patients, service users, families and those with lived experience sharing their experience with health care professionals and service providers to improve mental health care and services.
“It was the most informative conference I’ve attended, so thank you very much. It really will make a difference. I’m now in touch with some of the key people that can make such a difference to how we approach mental health and reduce suicide.”
What are your current priorities?
To continue to produce suicide prevention programmes and raise awareness of campaigns such as towards zero suicide, national policy and local examples of best practice.
What challenges are you currently facing?
Engaging audiences when training budgets are low and time is short.
