Action To Prevent Suicide CIC is a Devon based not-for-profit dedicated to raising funds for community-based programs focused on suicide prevention and increasing awareness of this often taboo subject.
We’re inspired by LivingWorks – an international organisation based in Canada. Their community based programmes are proven prevention techniques and there is now a large body of evidence which proves how effective they are.
We are committed to making Devon a suicide-safer community and helping to increase knowledge, debate and action on preventing suicide – whether that be within the South West, nationally or even globally.
Action To Prevent Suicide works through these partner organisations:
- The Devon and Torbay Suicide Prevention Alliance (DTSPA) – an alliance of local organisations dedicated to suicide prevention and after-care for those bereaved by suicide. The DTSPA is also aiming to serve as a support network for those who have trained in suicide prevention as well as becoming the main portal for information, insight and training in the region.
- Orchid Community & Associates – a training organisation that delivers suicide prevention training.
We’re a member organisation of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance.
