Suicide Prevention Focus Group

The current pandemic and its impact on people’s mental health reinforces the need for support in the community to ensure that there is a system where everyone, especially those at risk of suicide, is able to access the support they need.


We’re looking for 20 people to take part in two online focus groups. We hope to engage as diverse a range of people as possible, particularly those who identify as having lived experience of mental ill-health.
