Suicide Prevention & Bereavement Support

What is this research?

We have collaborated on a number of projects looking at how suicide can be prevented and how people who are bereaved by suicide are supported. These include:

Why is this research important?

At least 6,500 people die from suicide in the UK each year. Many more will experience suicidal thoughts, which can be extremely distressing.

Many tens of thousands of people are bereaved by suicide each year. This has a large effect on people’s mental wellbeing, and is linked to an increased risk of suicide or mental health problems.

What are we doing?

We can host funds set up to raise money for research into suicide prevention (or any other mental health issue) and help identify and fund relevant high quality research projects.

We can also provide evaluation and research support to existing or potential suicide prevention services.
