SAMH suicide guides
SAMH work to equip communities with the tools and information to talk about suicide, seek help, and receive localised support quickly.
Some of the work SAMH does involves producing information and resources so that anyone affected by suicide in Scotland has access to the information they need.
They have a national campaign called ‘Ask Them About Suicide’ which aims to empower people to ask ‘are you thinking about suicide?’.
As part of this campaign, they have released new guides exploring how to live with your thoughts, or how to support someone else experiencing similar thoughts.:
- Suicide: Are you worried about someone? Use this guide to help you as you support a loved one.
- Suicide: Living with your thoughts. A useful guide to living with thoughts of suicide.
- Suicide: How to ask. Are you concerned that somebody you know is thinking about suicide?
These guides can be downloaded below. You can also find further information and resources on the SAMH website.
