Our Vision

We feel we must have ambition and can envisage an achievable desired state where deaths by suicide are very rare events. It’s a huge challenge and a big goal but achievable through prioritised, focused, practical actions to, for example:

  • make our communities and workplaces mentally healthy and psychologically safe places;
  • combine human intelligence and digital technology for earlier identification and intervention;
  • ‘design out suicide’ (or ‘design in suicide prevention’) in our built environment, education systems, health systems, and support systems for those known to be at risk or in danger (including restricting access to the means of suicide);
  • encourage every hospital, university, council, employer, industry association, professional society, etc to make practical plans for suicide prevention within their spheres of influence
  • build collaborative relationships with all those who share our belief that we can considerably reduce the number of suicides, with joint action to make that difference.

The act of suicide is a practical act – it needs practical actions to prevent it.

And suicide prevention is a mix of individual action and collective action, with everyone being able to make a contribution – from supporting individuals to collaborating in collective suicide prevention initiatives.
