This is an opportunity to work with the University of Exeter in their research into how members of the public can help prevent suicide in public places. This work is inspired by Jonny Benjamin’s “The Stranger on the Bridge” and the University would like to hear from you if you are aged 18 or over, and fall into one of the following groups:
- You have personal experience of attempting or seriously considering taking your own life in a public location and you were prevented from doing so by a stranger.
- You have personal experience of trying to prevent someone you didn’t know (a stranger) from taking their own life in a public location.
The type of location doesn’t matter – it doesn’t need to have been a bridge – as long as it was a public place. If you are in doubt about whether your experience fits, please get in touch to talk it through with one of the research team.
Please also share this as widely as you see fit in order to reach others who might be able to take part.
Many thanks, Evan Grant
