Regional Roundup

The Regional Roundup is a space to share what’s happening to prevent suicide in our region.  We need this because our best chance of supporting families and saving lives is by working together, making the most of the resources and training we have here and not wasting time and energy on duplication or trying to do it all ourselves.

You’ll also find here an update about on actions taken to progress the strategies in the Suicide Prevention Community Action Plan. The Planning Group meets monthly, works continuously and welcomes your input or feedback into the strategies.

We hope you find this information useful and that you share it with others who can benefit as well.  If you have any resources or other information to be shared, or want help with something, please email it through to Shea.
