Zero Suicide Alliance

The Problem: In the Samaritans Suicide Statistics Report 2017 there were 6,188 suicides recorded which is the equivalent of 20 long haul aeroplanes crashing annually. That’s an average of 17 deaths by suicide per day, which we as an alliance believe could have been prevented through training individuals to recognise the warning signs that someone could be contemplating suicide and enabling them act in an appropriate manner to help safeguard those at risk.

The Solution: The core aim of the Zero Suicide Alliance is to get people to make an explicit commitment to reduce suicide deaths. Through providing free training, which is available to all, to help empower individuals to identify every person at risk for suicide and give them the confidence to engage with those presenting with suicidal thoughts and/or behaviour. Whilst also enabling those who’ve taken the training to signpost individuals who are at risk to the correct services or support.

Get Involved: Lend your Facebook and Twitter feeds to our cause: The time has come to stop talking about suicide as a public health issue and to start taking action. If you agree, please join our Thunderclap campaign to help us spread the word about our free suicide prevention training which is launching on Thursday 16th November 2017. The training will be available to everyone from this date, and even better it’ll only take 20 minutes to complete. Find out more by visiting: www.zerosuicidealliance.com.
