Action Plan

The NSPA believes that everyone has a part to play in reducing the number of suicides and better supporting those affected by suicide. The NSPA's Action Plans are about demonstrating this; by publically sharing what work your organisation is doing to tackle issues relating to suicide, it demonstrates the broad range of actions an organisation can take - no matter how big or small - and encourages other organisations to become members themselves and take action.

The NSPA Declaration lists seven outcomes to reduce suicide and improve support for those bereaved or affected by suicide that it believes its members can work together to achieve (see "The difference we aim to make").

How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it? Every week our team of qualified, regulated care professionals help support members of the public with issues that may impact and affect their mental health. Our team have been trained to deal with patients who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, and we help our members to find the right places for the right help.
What are your current priorities? Helping our members to feel supported, and access our clinicians 24/7 when they have a primary or mental health concern. We're trying to change the narrative around mental health and well-being by letting people know you don't have to wait to get support, professional advice or treatment.
What challenges are you currently facing? Changing the attitude, especially in men, that it's OK to wait till the last minute to seek help and support. We're actively campaigning to let people know that seeking support at the earliest possible moment is not a sign of weakness, and is something that can have a long-term positive impact.
