Chasing the Stigma has today been appointed the latest member of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance.
The alliance (NSPA) was created in 2013 and brings together public, private, voluntary and community organisations in England who care about suicide prevention and are willing to take action to reduce suicide and support those affected by suicide.
Speaking on joining the NSPA, CEO Jake Mills said, “We’re delighted to be part of such a forward thinking, proactive alliance of people who are determined to make a difference. At Chasing the Stigma, we firmly believe that suicide is preventable and that the factors which play a significant role in somebody’s decision to end their lives by suicide are treatable. We know that early intervention is essential and grassroots organisations, such as charities and community groups, hold the key to lifesaving help and support. We believe we will be able to bring something new to the alliance and we can’t wait to have our voice join the converstion about suicide prevention.”
