Surviving suicidal thoughts
NHS 24 has worked with partners at the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group, SAMH, Police Scotland and people with lived experience around suicide. The project supports people having suicidal thoughts by sharing video stories from people who have experienced the same and gone on to find ways of coping and living better.
This new surviving suicidal thoughts website is now live and it is hoped that this resource will be helpful for partner organisations who support people who are living with suicidal thoughts, their families, and friends. Located on NHS Inform, it features stories from people who experienced very different situations and circumstances - but who found a way past suicidal thoughts. Their words and voices offer support and strategies for people who are experiencing thoughts of suicide, and to those around them, family, friends, work mates and others.
