Introduction

Every life matters and everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention. The impact of suicide on families, friends and communities is devastating and has long lasting consequences. Scotland has seen a strong downward trend in suicides over the last several years. The purpose of this paper is to seek views on themes and draft actions for possible inclusion in the Scottish Government's new Suicide Prevention Action Plan aimed at continuing the downward trend in suicides in Scotland [1] . The themes and draft actions in the paper arise from discussions with a wide range of stakeholders, including people with lived experience [2] , over the past few months.
