We do this by:

Being available

24 hours a day to provide emotional support for people who are struggling to cope, including those who have had thoughts of suicide

Reaching out

to high risk groups and communities to reduce the risk of suicide

Working in partnership

  • with other organisations, agencies and experts
  • Influencing public policy
  • and raising awareness of the challenges of reducing suicide
