Involving people with lived experience in suicide prevention and bereavement support FAQs
Members of the VCSE Health & Wellbeing Alliance’s Suicide Prevention Consortium, the National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA) and Support After Suicide Partnership (SASP), have published a resource which provides introductory guidance for professionals and organisations on involving people with lived experience in suicide prevention and bereavement support, as well as introducing best practice recommendations and links to further resources.
This was developed collaboratively with a group of people with lived experience expertise.
One of the key aims of the Consortium is to amplify the voices of lived experience in their work and strongly believe these voices should be embedded in suicide prevention strategy, policy and support. This Q&A has been developed to help those working in suicide prevention do this in a meaningful way.
