SANE, a leading mental health charity, today announces the launch of a major study into suicide, focusing on personal experience. Its aim is to develop new insights into suicide, enabling the public as well as professionals to understand better and respond more effectively.
Families, partners and friends of those individuals at risk are often best placed to help prevent suicides, yet their role is largely overlooked in suicide prevention policy and remains unsupported by research.
The three-year research project, A New Focus for Suicide Prevention: Harnessing Personal Experience, aims to redress this imbalance and is supported by a grant of £387,282 from the Big Lottery Fund.
