Angus cares about Suicide Prevention

 

There has never been a more important time for anyone who lives or works in Angus to have their say about suicide prevention.

The Angus Mental Health and Wellbeing Network is driving forward actions to increase the profile of suicide prevention in Angus.

Angus Suicide Prevention Survey 2021

The Network has also launched a survey to establish the needs of people across Angus. The group believes that everyone should have the opportunity to be involved in shaping suicide prevention services and developments to meet local needs

You can find the survey here and it closes on3 April

Terry Irvine, Chair of the multiagency group said, “It takes tremendous courage for people to share their thoughts and experiences in relation to suicide and it is important that anyone that is struggling reaches out for help.

It is vital that when people reach out there is a compassionate, respectful response available to listen and provide the right support.

With the launch of these two initiatives, we aim to improve our approach to suicide prevention, and we need the people of Angus to help us make change a reality.”

Now is the time to make a difference, Suicide Prevention is Everyone’s Business.
