Run a group

Group of people in a discussion

Tell people about services

Let people know about crisis support services - they can help prevent a suicide. 

Prepare leaders

Leaders can use their standing in the community to bring people together and encourage action on suicide prevention.

Train people

Education and training for selected people on suicidal behaviour and effective responses will make the community better able to prevent suicide.

Media and communications

Local media – particularly newspapers and radio – can be a excellent way to let people know about positive mental health messages, suicide prevention activities.

Network with others

​Consider joining a network of suicide prevention groups to learn from and help others. Below are just two options available to you and your group.

Evaluate your progress

Making time to reflect and review progress using the information collected can help you work out what changes or refinements to the plan are needed.
