Suicide Prevention Program. 


Ed Roberts, our Prevention and Positive Activities coordinator is in post. For details about his role contact Ed by email

Norfolk’s Suicide Reduction Strategy aims to reach and support men experiencing a sense of hopelessness leading to suicide ideation.  This role will involve casework with primary health (OneNorwichCCG & the Escalation and Avoidance Team). It also requires developing a variety of positive activities that men will engage in and find meaning and purpose and leads to increased resilience and mitigates the risk of suicide.  

The new role includes identifying and implementing strategies to enable these individuals to overcome barriers and ultimately to exit patterns of suicide ideation, and to engage in meaningful activities and social connections. The coordinator carries a caseload of clients and will involve either key working those clients directly or assisting in the coordination of support.
