The implementation of Connecting for Life at a local/area-level happens through locally developed CfL suicide prevention action plans, which are being implemented by multisectoral steering and working groups. All actions in the local area plans are aligned to actions and objectives in the national strategy. The HSE Resource Officers for Suicide Prevention (ROSPs) are the key drivers of this work, as they are required to coordinate and support local implementation.
This document covers part one of a wider project looking at innovation and the self-evaluation of suicide prevention at an area-level, in collaboration with HSE ROSPs.
Details of the 12 projects (dating from 2015 onwards) that were selected for the Innovation Showcase can be found in this document.
