National Suicide Prevention Strategy Event

November 17, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Public Health Scotland, Scottish Government and COSLA are developing the next national strategy on suicide prevention, and have opened an online questionnaire, along with a series of online events.

As suicide affects everyone in Scotland in some way, they are keen to hear from local people, groups and communities about what matters to them – whether that is how the factors which contribute to suicide are addressed, how to be more confident about speaking about suicide, knowing where to get help if you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, or what and when support is needed for those affected by suicide.


The online questionnaire is available via the Scottish Government consultation hub (linked for your convenience); the deadline for responses is Sunday 21st November.

If for any reason you are unable to submit your response through the consultation hub linked above, you can download the questionnaire via the Scottish Government website, and return by post or email.
