The SASP is the co-ordinating hub for a UK-wide network of organisations that support people who have been bereaved or affected by suicide. We do this through research,
advocacy, signposting, innovative practice and working together.
“We believe that everyone bereaved or affected by suicide should be offered timely and appropriate support”
In 2015, 6,188 people died by suicide in the UK. Research suggests 60 people are impacted by every suicide; that’s 370,000 people affected a year. Yet there is currently no statutory support and these people may face many physical, mental and financial challenges.
The Support After Suicide Partnership and the University of Manchester are working together to find out what the real impact of suicide is on the UK. This study is the first of its kind.
We are asking as many people as possible who have been affected by suicide to complete a 20 minute survey to tell us about how they were impacted.
Taking part in our research will help us to make support better for people who have been impacted by suicide in the future.
You can take part by visiting supportaftersuicide.org.uk/research, from September 2017 to August 2018.
The survey collects anonymous answers.
