How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?

We have a 24/7 call centre with a freephone number. We provide support and counselling for people suffering with poor mental health and support for their families. We run a nightwatch project which looks out for vulnerable people at known locations, and assist in searches. We have police and medical partnerships for when we need them.
