Partners in Prevention: Suicide Prevention Consortium report

The Government’s Suicide Prevention Strategy for England, published in September 2023, makes clear that the actions the Government has committed to in the strategy were shaped and strengthened by people with lived experience of suicide.
As part of the Suicide Prevention Consortium*, Samaritans and the National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA) sought views from 114 members of NSPA’s and Samaritans’ lived experience networks** about how much they felt they contributed to the strategy.
