Suicide Prevention Week (6-10 September 2021)

Together we can make a difference

During Suicide Prevention Week (6-10 September 2021), we’ll be raising awareness of suicide, encouraging people to talk about it openly and to get support, and sharing what help is available in Tayside.

Across Tayside we are working hard to prevent suicide through a new Multiagency Suicide Prevention Network. COVID has highlighted the importance of mental health and wellbeing for us all. Suicide prevention is everybody’s business and we all have a role to play.
