Suicide and Life-Saving Interventions on the Railways in Great Britain: A Research Study

June 30, 2020 11:17 am Published by

As part of a wider programme of work, Samaritans, on behalf of Stakeholders in the Rail Industry, commissioned new research to help understand and reduce suicide on the railways. The main aim of this project was to complement and add to what is already known about this subject, by increasing understanding of where, when and how suicide at railway and other public locations can be safely and effectively prevented by a third-party intervention (involving a range of staff groups and members of the public), and with what implications (including potential displacement to other suicide methods or locations).
