Multi-agency approaches to suicide prevention


We are currently working on a collaborative with health services, police services and the charitable sector on the challenges and emotional impact of working with suicide. This is a qualitative project involving interviewing professionals outside of the NHS. The PhD project could be an extension of this LOSST LIFFE work, by interviewing health service professionals working with suicidal persons and those died by suicide to explore the emotional impact on staff, and develop interventions that mediate or support vicarious trauma.
