Time, Space, Compassion: Introductory Guide
The Scottish Government have produced an introductory guide to the Time Space Compassion principles and approach – a relationship and person centred approach to improving suicidal crisis.
The guide has been developed for use by people and services who regularly come into contact and support people experiencing suicidal crisis. This could be useful for staff working in students’ associations and support services at colleges and universities.
Time Space Compassion focuses on people’s experience, human connection and relationships, offering a shared language, resources, and ways to connect and take action together.
It is one part of a national programme, aiming to maximise the impact of national and local action to reduce deaths by suicide in Scotland. You can find out more about this in Scotland’s Suicide Prevention Strategy and Action Plan.
The Time Space Compassion Introductory Guide shares the strategy’s vision and guiding principles. Download the guide below.
