National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group: Time, Space, Compassion Three Simple Words, One Big Difference’ report
Action 5 of Every Life Matters states that the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group (NSPLG) will use evidence on the effectiveness of differing models of crisis support to make recommendations to service providers and share best practice. Further, it asserts that people in distress, including those who self-harm, need to find a respectful, compassionate response when they present to services for support. This action is at the core of achieving the vision of Every Life Matters, ensuring the right support is available for people in distress and actively contemplating suicide at a time of crisis.
The National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group (NSPLG) published the ‘Time, Space, Compassion Three Simple Words, One Big Difference’ report on 13 October which provides recommendations for improvements in suicidal crisis response. To read the report, click here.
