New ZSA Resources

Do you work in mental health, suicide prevention or within government?
Do you want to know more about suicide rates in your area and contributing factors in your community?
Do you want to know what you can do to keep pushing for Zero Suicide?

Our ZSA resources have been developed to help!
What are the ZSA Resources?
We know that suicide is complex. There are many factors that can contribute to a person taking their own life. The role of suicide prevention work is not straight forward, it requires change in all areas to support people with their mental health and overall wellbeing.
At the Zero Suicide Alliance we recognise that data and research is vitally important to not only raise awareness of suicide, but to act as a starting point for professionals and community leaders to take meaningful targeted action to help prevent suicide.
Our NEW evidence-based resources have been designed to help you understand ‘the now’ in relation to suicide rates and the factors that contribute to suicide in your area.
Even though every community faces different challenges in supporting people’s mental health, we share learning by highlighting real-world examples of best and effective practice across the UK and beyond.
 So what’s new?

  • Explore our interactive  Suicide Prevention Resource Map, enabling you to gain a more in-depth picture of your community, including the health, social and service related factors that can contribute to suicide.
  • Get visual data snapshots from our National Dashboards on suicide rates across the UK, understanding the different challenges faced in communities across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

  • Visit our Facts for Action to learn more about these factors, how they link to an increased risk of suicide, clinical life course, the causes and consequences, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, national best practice guidelines and ideas for action.

  • Visit our resource and case study libraries to find an innovative resource to help you take action and learn from real-world examples from other professionals about how change can be achieved.
