To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to support Choose Life co-ordinators in the next five years.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 28 September 2016
Support to Choose Life coordinators is currently provided by NHS Health Scotland's National Suicide Prevention Programme team on behalf of the Scottish Government.
In 2017 we will publish a new Suicide Prevention Strategy; our development of this Strategy will include consideration of local suicide prevention actions and how best to support this in the future.
