Art of Conversation

Tuesday 2 August 2016

The Art of Conversation includes sections on the myths and the signs of suicide, spotting the signs and helping, and advice on starting difficult conversations.

It aims to help the reader to be a good listener, details training courses and includes other available resources that are in place across Scotland and the rest of the UK.

This guidance is about preventing suicides at locations of concern and is an important part of the suicide prevention strategy in Scotland. A location of concern has been defined as 'a specific usually public site which is frequently used as a location for suicide and which provides either means or opportunity for suicide'. This guidance recognizes the need for a range of agencies working in partnership and is adapted from the Australian Government Department of Health publication, Preventing Suicide at Suicide Hotspots.

This research report sets out to provide measures of awareness of suicide and suicide prevention messages in Scotland and gather insights and measures from key target audiences. The findings will be used to inform the development of a marketing plan for NHS Health Scotland's National Programme for Suicide Prevention.

This publication lists the support which is available for those who have been bereaved by suicide within local areas.
