  • Engagement sessions on public locations where jumping from height is, or could be, a concern

    Created: 10/11/2021

    When: 10:00 - 12:00, Thursday 02 December 2021
    Where: Online
    This event is being organised by the Scottish Government, COSLA, Samaritans Scotland, Public Health Scotland and Police Scotland,

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    A location of concern is currently defined as a specific, usually public, site that is frequently used as a location for suicide and which provides either means or opportunity for suicide. As part of the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Group’s (NSPLG) COVID-19 Response Statement, there is a clear focus on reducing access to means for suicide both nationally and locally. Prevention at a location of concern forms a very important part of this action.

    How you can help?

    A series of events, initiated by the Scottish Government, COSLA, Samaritans Scotland, Public Health Scotland and Police Scotland, will bring together agencies and stakeholders, to share knowledge, current strategies, and best practice approach on addressing locations of concern. As national and local agencies/individuals with a role to play in identifying and taking action to support suicide prevention, you are invited to participate in an online facilitated event whose focus will be on public locations where jumping from height is, or could be, a concern. These engagement sessions will have a clear focus on:

    1. Identifying short terms actions – including how the NSPLG and partners can provide appropriate national and local support, resources and activities.
    2. Identify longer-term actions to support improved planning and strategic responses to locations of concern where jumping from height is, or could be, could be an issue.
    3. Provide an opportunity to begin establishing a bank of examples that could help inform future practice and action
