I believe that every client who comes to our Suicide Crisis Centre can survive
My hope is that the Select Committee will look in detail at the combination of factors which have contributed to the success of this Crisis Centre. There is a very great need for similar Centres in other counties and we are starting to work to make this happen. If we had a Suicide Crisis Centre in every county, it could play a major role in reducing the number of people who die by suicide.
"He/she is difficult to engage." It's a term that I have often heard used by psychiatric staff when talking about patients. I was described as "difficult to engage" when I was under mental health services and now that I run a Suicide Crisis Centre, I frequently hear the same phrase used by psychiatric staff who signpost to us.
