As Director of Samaritans of Cornwall at Truro, I have worked with suicide prevention agencies over the last few years to try to raise awareness and in particular to provide some clear processes and procedures to enhance resilience in our young people and advise teachers, support workers and carers on how to interact with people who are struggling emotionally.
