10th December 2018

The Scottish Government have released a Public Engagement – Analysis report based on responses received in the development of the Suicide Prevention Action Plan 2018.

Between 8 March and 30 April 2018 the Scottish Government undertook  public engagement to gather views for consideration in preparing their Suicide Prevention Action Plan 2018.

The engagement received a total of 290 responses, with the majority submitted by individual members of the public and the remainder by organisations. This engagement was structured around four action points:

  • the formation of a “Knowledge Into Action” group
  • the modernisation of training arrangements
  • the establishment of a Suicide Prevention Confederation
  • the development of an online suicide prevention presence in Scotland.

Public Engagement – Analysis Responses gives an overview of the responses received.
