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? At Well Springs, we have two suicide first aid trained staff and support people with suicial ideation by listening to them and working towards a safe plan. We also signpost people to their GP and other organisations such as Samartians, to receive support and medical professional advice. We attend the Bedfordshire and Luton Suicide Prevention Campaign meetings to keep abreast of the activities that are taking place in our local area. We work with the On Its Head campaign to support the message of placing the stigma on its head to prevent more lives being turned upside down. Having lived experience of suicide is what connects us to those affected by suicide.

 
What are your current priorities? One of our current priorities is teaching young people the skills to manage everyday situations. We are also focussed on:

Suicide prevention
Mental health education
Wellbeing

We have 2 ASIST suicide first aiders and support and signpost people where necessary.
What challenges are you currently facing? We are not funded at present however have applied for some funding and are currently awaiting the outcome. We have devised a project to deliver in schools that which teach young people about emotional health and wellbeing.
