  • United to Prevent Suicide - a social movement

    Created: 10/09/2020

    United to Prevent Suicide is a new unifying identity for suicide prevention in Scotland. It marks a new approach to preventing suicide as set out in Scotland’s National Suicide Prevention Action Plan. It aims to:

    • build a social movement of people with a shared belief in preventing suicide;
    • improve on knowledge and skills in suicide prevention with the development of free learning resources;
    • support those bereaved by suicide through the development of a new dedicated service;
    • utilise digital technology to improve suicide prevention;
    • develop a new approach to crisis care for those who experience suicidal thoughts;
    • supply an increased amount of resources to support improved local action in every area of Scotland; and
    • inspiring leaders across all aspects of life in Scotland to create a culture that supports preventing suicide.

    This work is funded by Scottish Government and led by the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group. The social movement work is jointly managed by Public Health Scotland and SAMH.
