Suicide Strategy Prevention Launch

Our first Suicide Prevention Strategy was successfully launched on Friday 17 February and is available in an electronic, fully interactive format.

The underlying message of the strategy is that we all need to talk more about suicide, to try to help those most at risk.

The strategy was unveiled to an audience of staff and members of the public at a special event in Bexley.

Families and friends who have been bereaved by suicide came to the event and spoke of their experiences and they have been essential in helping us to shape our strategy.

Linda Gask, a consultant psychiatrist and professor from Manchester University, was a guest speaker. She emphasised the need to keep communication channels open and to challenge the stigma that still surrounds this life-shattering event.
