Since our foundation in 2003, 3Ts has supported innovative research in the fields of suicide & suicide prevention. We've identified, funded and participated in key research projects to help fill knowledge gaps. We hope that our research can help inform future suicide prevention policies and ultimately help prevent future deaths by suicide.
Accessing Help for Self-Harm and Suicidal Behaviour in the Emergency Department
Phase 2 - the experience of family members & companions
Phase 1 studied the experience of service-users themselves and revealed the need for a back to basics approach to patient care. The research is funded by 3Ts and the Irish Reserach Council (New Foundations Grant) and is conducted by a team at Trinity College Dublin School of Nursing and Midwifery.
We are now recruiting for Phase 2 of our research. We would like to hear from you if you are a family member/companion who accompanied a person to the Emergency Department following self-harm/suicide attempt or suicidal thinking. Family members can include any relation of the person while companions can include informal carers, professional carers, friends, or any person who accompanies someone to the ED.
