Research: LGBTQ+ people with lived experience of suicidal feelings

Members of the VCSE Health & Wellbeing Alliance are working on research around LGBTQ+ people with lived experience of suicidal feelings.

The Suicide Prevention Consortium is currently recruiting for their latest research, LGBTQ+ people, alcohol and suicide, that aims to improve support for LGBTQ+ people who drink alcohol and have experienced suicidal feelings/attempts and/or self-harm.

They will be conducting one to one remote interviews with participants that live in England, identify as LGBTQ+ or any other sexual/gender minority, have experiences with drinking alcohol, and have experiences of suicidal feelings, attempting suicide or self-harm. Interviews will be conducted in January 2023. More details and information on how to register interest can be found in the information pack.

Samaritans will be recruiting 10 LGBTQ+ people with lived experience of suicidal behaviour (suicidal thoughts, attempts, self-harm), who are available to take part in 5 online co-production workshops across February and March.

They will work collaboratively to come up with robust policy solutions to provide better support for LGBTQ+ people when they are struggling. Email Naomi Graves [email protected] to register interest in receiving an information pack and application form.
