Creating Hope Together: suicide prevention strategy 2022 to 2032

Scotland's Suicide Prevention Strategy covering the period from 2022 to 2032.


Many people have contributed to the development of this strategy and its associated action plan, without whom we would not have been able to develop such an ambitious and collaborative approach to suicide prevention.

In particular we would like to thank all those who gave up their time to join any of the online or face to face discussion groups and/or complete the online questionnaire(s), these were key to identifying the initial themes, and where action was needed.

We are also grateful to all our partners organisations who are already contributing to our suicide prevention work in Scotland, and who have shared their experience and expertise to shape this new approach. This includes many organisations who do not have an explicit remit around suicide prevention but whose work contributes to some of the known issues which can lead to suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

We wish to thank everyone who has provided their professional knowledge to help develop the outcomes and the identified actions.

And finally, a heartfelt thank you to all those people with lived or living experience of suicide who have given their time freely to help shape these documents, we cannot thank you enough.
