  • Invitation to people with lived experience of suicide to become a volunteer member of the new National Suicide Prevention: Lived Experience Panel

    Created: 17/10/2019

    The Annual Report from the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group lays out the intention to establish a Lived Experience Panel to support the implementation of the Action Plan.

    SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) are pleased to invite applications from people with lived experience of suicide to become a volunteer member of the new National Suicide Prevention: Lived Experience Panel.

    Working closely with the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group and associated Delivery Leads, the Lived Experience Panel will provide an important platform for people with lived experience of suicide to share their valuable insights and experiences, to help implement the Scottish Government’s Suicide Prevention Action Plan, which aims to reduce suicide rates in Scotland by 20% by 2022. 

    This Panel has been funded as part of a bid from SAMH, Penumbra, Support in Mind, Mental Health Foundation and Samaritans and is being supported by a dedicated resource located at SAMH

    As part of establishing the Panel, a call has gone out to recruit individual members (probably up to 15) – further details of how people can apply can be found here

    Closing date: 25 Oct 2019
