Suicide Prevention Week (SPW) takes place from Mon 9 to Sun 15 September 2019.
This year’s theme is ‘Working Together to Prevent Suicide’. Suicide remains a leading cause of early death in Scotland.
Suicide is everyone's business and we must continue our efforts to support people when they are in distress.
The animation below explores the issue of suicide, including statistics and facts about suicide in Scotland. It helps learners understand the signs that people may be thinking about suicide, and how and when to provide immediate help and support.
Below is an introduction to the Breathing Space helpline. Advisors are available in the evenings and 24 hours at the weekend to offer compassion, listening and advice.
