We became a recognized charity in May 2015.We have a Board made up of 9 people (Survivors ; Suicide Prevention activists; professional background in helping and suicide attempt survivors) bringing together a wealth of knowledge, skills & experience alongside specific beliefs about suicide and its prevention.
We believe that the only acceptable target for suicide deaths is zero. Initially we campaigned at Department of Healthand senior Public Health Agency levels but reverted to a “ground up” community development approach – “think big, start small & scale fast.
“I`d rather have an awkward conversation than a dead friend” –
comment from a young participant at one of our training workshops when the need to ask clearly and directly about suicide was being explained.
