Support services launched
NEW services aimed at preventing suicide have been introduced by Angus Health and Social Care Partnership.
The suicide prevention and support service will offer early intervention for vulnerable adults. It will be available to anyone in Angus who experiences thoughts of suicide or who may have attempted it.
Support is also available for family members, carers or friends of adults having suicidal thoughts.
The service will offer assessment of individual need, provide support and interventions to promote people’s safety, wellbeing and recovery. Information, guidance and signposting around suicide prevention will also be provided.
