Time, Space, Compassion Three simple words, one big difference: Recommendations for improvements in suicidal crisis response
Gathering evidence

Gathering evidence

Views were gathered through a range of consultation opportunities which included two workshops with the NSPLG, three workshops with the NSPLG Lived Experience Panel, six advisory group meetings and a questionnaire completed by 211 respondents who either had lived experience or were service providers.

The Academic Advisory Group (AAG) also undertook a review of the available literature, while the Action 5 Delivery Lead undertook an additional search of grey literature and available guidance.

A draft paper was presented to the NSPLG and the Lived Experience Panel in December 2020 which focused on a range of options. The discussions which followed helped to establish an approach to crisis response which has shaped the recommendations in this report.
