Difficult one for me to fill in, but useful nevertheless. Thanks for this.
Thanks for this Mathew S.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences - it's much appreciated.
I have just my telephone interview with Dafni.
She is a lovely person who asks the right questions and is a good listener !.
The interview took 45 minutes and if you get the chance to take part I recommend you do.
I've filled it out.
Thank you so much for the endorsement. It was lovely talking to you too and listening to your thoughts and experiences on the topic. I am glad you found the interview beneficial.
My best, Dafni
Can I speak to you about how to deal with people with suicidal thoughts please?
Of course. Can you drop me an email in email@example.com to schedule it?
I feel that staffed stations would help, but the real problem is the underlying social circumstances, such as the welfare cuts, the Brexit and climate change.
Completed this and would encourage others to do the same. Very valuable use of time and I hope the research goes well.
We aim to inform new policy initiatives based on the findings of the study. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
Thank you for your kind words!
I seem to get a lot of requests to fill in academic surveys and I have possibly never found one so well constructed as this.
I am glad to hear that. We want to capture peoples' experiences in depth. Thank you for completing.
Completed and I would encourage everyone to do the same.
Approaching someone who you feel MAY be suicidal can be very difficult but, believe me, when you've done it once ,you'll do it again and again. I have spoken to 7 people who I had concerns about , only 2 of whom were confirmed as being suicidal. If the other 5 weren't, that's fine by me - I just spoke to some strangers!
If you are in the industry and/or have had any experience of intervention with someone who may or my not have been suicidal, then I would ask you to please take part in this research if you can. I had the honour of a face-to-face follow-up interview with Dafni today and she is one of the loveliest people you will ever get to meet. Discussing and dealing with such a dark topic is never easy but she is brilliant at normalising the discussion and is doing fantastic work which may just help save lives, so please do contribute if you can, and encourage your colleagues to do so too. You'll even get £20 for your time ifyou do an interview, although I asked her to donate mine to the Samaritans.
Thanks to all for reading, and special thanks to Dafni for what you are doing and how you are doing it
Thank you so much for your time and endorsement. Lovely to speak to you too!
Done. Sobering questions
No action on this for a while. Is there any update?
I am sorry - I have been on my annual leave and wasn't checking the forum for a while.
Today is the World Suicide Prevention Day!
We will keep our survey live until the 16th of September. If you haven't taken part and you want to, please do.
I want to say a massive thank you to each and everyone who took the time and responded to our survey. We couldn't have done it without your stories and your point of view.
Completed and shared on social platforms.
Just done mine. A very worthwhile 30 minutes.
Done, good to raise awareness.
You probably spoke to me. Enthusiast hanging around at the end of a platform !.
