In 2002, the Scottish Executive launched Choose Life, a ten year national strategy and action plan to prevent suicide in Scotland. The strategy includes a target to reduce suicide by 20% by 2013 and progress towards this target can be viewed in the statistics section of the website.

Choose Life sets out a framework to ensure that action is taken nationally and locally to build skills, develop training, encourage people to seek help early, improve knowledge and awareness of ‘what works’ to prevent suicide, and to encourage partnership working and improved co-ordination between services.

Our website aims to be a central portal of information about suicide prevention in Scotland – do please help us keep others informed of developments and let us know how useful you found our site.

Suicide. Don’t Hide it. Talk about it.
