Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, yet we know that suicide is often preventable and not inevitable. This report demonstrates the value of Shout in preventing suicide in the UK, particularly for children, young people and those who are not accessing alternative mental health support.

Independent analysis also determines that Shout is a value-for-money suicide prevention service, generating significant cost savings for both the UK economy and the organisations that commission the service. These savings extend far beyond the scope of this report, given the wider benefits the service generates in relation to other mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression and self-harm.
