September Results

Our Question of the Month for September was based on our ‘Mental Health & Suicide Prevention’ themed newsletter.

We published a new Safer Communities Scotland Podcast on ‘Working Together to Prevent Suicide’ with John Gibson of the Canmore Trust & marked World Suicide Prevention Day on 11 September.

In the Podcast we discussed suicide stigma and the importance of talking about suicidal feelings.

We asked:

“Would you feel comfortable raising the topic of suicide or suicidal thinking with a friend or loved one?”
