REBA - Making suicide personal – why zero suicides is achievable

By Katharine Moxham 17 October 2019.

I’m proud to represent an industry which makes a real contribution to suicide prevention – helping employers to support their staff’s mental health, stepping in with interventions, treatment, mental health first aid training and fast access to talking therapies. We also pay out for deaths by suicide*, help support those left behind and give access to group risk protection benefits (employer-sponsored life assurance, income protection and critical illness benefits) for most people without them having to disclose mental health conditions. However, I was challenged recently to give some thought to how to change the way we think about suicide.

As I pondered this, my initial reaction was that I’m no expert on the subject and there are others far better qualified to do this. This won’t change but, as I cogitated, it occurred to me that I’m not quite the stranger to suicide as I made out to myself – as it has, in fact, breathed past me several times.
