Suicide research programme seeking perspectives
07 July 2022
Suicide Cultures is a Wellcome Trust funded research programme which aims to explore how suicide is experienced and what suicide means to diverse communities across Scotland and its Islands.
The project is interested in:
- The way in which social contexts affect how suicide is understood, and how it is practised.
- The role of culture in shaping the meanings suicide has, and the impact this might have on different communities across Scotland.
This research programme would like to include a range of different perspectives from people who have experienced or are experiencing suicidality; people who have been bereaved by suicide; and people who work with those who have experienced or are experiencing suicidality.
The research will be engaging with people in a range of different ways, including through ethnography, interviews and creative methods (photovoice, walking interviews and mapping).
