This OiTM report aims to offer guidance and support to all agencies (statutory, voluntary and third sector) working with veterans and their families to aid the reduction of suicide. It is constructed to reflect the journey to suicide, and to enhance support to those working with vulnerable populations including veterans and their families. The intention is for this document to operate on two different levels: firstly, the veteran and their family, and secondly, existing service provision. However, the aim of this document is not to provide a specific plan to implement, as one plan will never fit all. The Framework and Tool Kit is specifically designed to help and assist organisations focus on specific areas associated with suicide in the veteran population (based on the empirical findings of this OiTM study), whilst also highlighting the importance of protective factors. This OiTM document is designed to aid organisations in developing a bespoke approach to suicide prevention and improving provision and support for service users and families.
