Together is better when it comes to suicide prevention

10 September 2018

As members of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance, we are working together for World Suicide Prevention Day.

The National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA), was set up in 2013 to bring together public, private and voluntary organisations to take action to prevent suicide in England and support those affected by it. Its 250 members and supporters include the charities Samaritans, MIND and Rethink Mental Illness, as well as local authorities, health bodies and businesses.

Throughout the day, the NSPA will be showcasing ground breaking projects and initiatives that are making a real difference by supporting those at risk and helping to save lives.

Brian Dow, co-chair of the NSPA and Director of External Affairs at Rethink Mentall Illness said:

“NSPA members working together are making suicide prevention more effective by using the expertise of partners and relevant organisations, like the NHS and the police, to reach as many people as possible and make suicide prevention everybody’s business.”

Learn more about the NSPA's activities for World Suicide Prevention Day by following @NSPA_UK on Twitter or visit their website.  You can also follow the day's events at #WSPD.
