  • Engagement Process of the Draft Suicide Prevention Action Plan 2018

    Created: 30/03/2018

    Every life matters and everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention. The impact of suicide on families, friends and communities is devastating and has long lasting consequences.

    The Scottish Governments existing Suicide Prevention Strategy covered the period 2013-16 and set out a range of commitments under 5 broad themes: Responding to people in distress; Talking about suicide; Improving the NHS response to suicide; Developing the evidence base; and Supporting change and improvement.

    They are now seeking views on themes and draft actions for possible inclusion in a new Suicide Prevention Action Plan aimed at continuing the downward trend in suicides in Scotland. The themes and draft actions have been published in an engagement paper on 08 March 2018, and have arisen from discussions with a wide range of stakeholders, including people with lived experience, over the past few months.

    Interested parties and individuals are now invited to respond formally to the themes and draft actions on suicide prevention over a 7 week period from 08 March 2018 to 30 April 2018 through:

    • The Consultation hub which can be accessed here.
       
    • A number of public engagement events organised by NHS Health Scotland. Please note that these events are now fully booked or registration has closed.
