Independent research projects

Through commissioning, supporting and carrying out high quality research, we aim to continually develop our understanding of suicide prevention and issues relating to wellbeing, and ultimately improve the services we provide to our callers.

All research projects are carried out within strict ethical guidelines, and approved by ethics committees.

There are a number of independent research projects being carried out by researchers within external organisations and universities in the UK.
