Scotland's Suicide Prevention Action Plan: Every Life Matters

Scotland's Suicide Prevention Action Plan: Every Life Matters

Thursday, August 9, 2018

ISBN: 9781788519984

Scotland's new Suicide Prevention Action Plan has been designed to continue good work from the 2013-2016 Suicide Prevention Strategy and to continue the strong downward trend in the Suicide Rate in Scotland.

Executive Summary

This document sets out the Scottish Government’s plan – working with our partners – to achieve those objectives. It lists the actions which leaders at a national, regional and local level must take to transform society’s response and attitudes towards suicide. Crucially, those actions extend beyond Health and Social Care. The approach we’ve set out is a cross-government one – which recognises the need for further collective action to prevent deaths by suicide.
