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 guide reflects our ongoing commitment to suicide prevention and provides a practical, positive approach to supporting people who have been bereaved by suicide and to supporting the professionals who respond to a death by suicide.
