Ask Tell Respond Learning Resources

Suicide is surrounded by stigma and shame and opening up this conversation and enabling people to feel more comfortable to use the word ‘suicide’ and talk openly with others about suicidal feelings would be a big step in the right direction.

As part of Scotland’s Suicide Prevention Action Plan, Every Life Matters, learning resources have been developed to help workforces to raise awareness of issues that surround mental health, self-harm and suicide prevention. We believe every suicide is preventable.
