#WeDocs - Wednesday 11th March 2015 8pm (GMT Standard Time) Preventing suicide in my organisation

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeDocs using #WeDocs

2015 NHS Change Day pledge

"I pledge to start a conversation about preventing suicide in my organisation"

There is encouraging evidence that public education campaigns are starting to be effective in breaking down the stigma associated with mental health issues and suicide in the general public but sadly not so in the NHS. The stigma of suicide is still a major barrier to people seeking and providing support in the NHS.  

Doctors and nurses are at an increased risk of suicide and the Australian Beyond Blue study last year showed that one-in-five medical students and one-in-ten doctors had suicidal thoughts in the past year, compared with one in 45 people in the wider community

Suicide is preventable and the first step is to start a conversation about it.

#WeDocs Tweetchat

The Tweetchat will be lead by Dr Alys Cole-King and supported by Philippa Rees. Alys says ‘Suicidal thoughts usually start because people feel overwhelmed by their problems or their situation. This can happen to absolutely anyone. People can find it hard to see a way out. It is not that they necessarily want their life to end: it is just that they cannot cope with their emotional or physical pain any more. We want to tackle stigma so people can feel free to access the support knowing that the person they approach will listen and not judge’.

Important information

Suicide is an emotional issue and we would urge people to seek support if they become distressed during or after the Tweetchat. Please see the list of suggested post chat resources. Also several people have kindly agreed to provide emotional support during the chat. Many thanks to our invited guests @CALL_247 @121depression who will kindly help to provide support to anyone who becomes distressed during the chat and also @DrKateLovett  @PookyH and @BPDFFS who intend to join our chat to contribute and also act as ‘chat buddies’. If they are approached or notice someone in distress they will signpost them onto support.

Questions for our chat:

1. Do doctors and healthcare professionals have a role in suicide prevention?

2. What are the barriers to doctors and healthcare professionals having a role in suicide prevention?

3. Why is there such stigma around talking about suicide and self-harm

4. Why do doctors have a higher suicide rate than the general population?

5. What can we do to prevent suicide in ourselves, our colleagues and our patients?

Request regarding use of language during the chat

Suicide is a very emotive subject and the reasons for this Tweetchat is to start to have conversations about suicide which will also break down stigma. This means the use of language is very important, this image from Mindframe helps explain:

 Chat Summary

 

Overall impression

The @WeDocs tweetchat on preventing suicide in our organizations was fantastic! It started out as an action from the #StartTheConveration NHSChange Day pledge which was "I pledge to start a conversation about preventing suicide in my organisation" – and did we start a conversation! The chat was lead by Dr Alys Cole-King and supported by Philippa Rees. Given the sensitive subject matter we invited some experienced tweeters to join us to provide a compassionate ‘safety net’ to everyone in the chat. Both @CALL_247 and @121depression provided excellent chat and emotional support during and after the chat and our peer buddies @DrKateLovett & @BPDFFS were wonderful!

Despite a very busy chat and difficult subject it was wonderful to see how quickly participants got into their stride and shared really powerful stories and supported each other. For some professionals this would be the first experience of talking to people with lived experience who were now fully recovered and actually turning the tables and providing insights and support to help the professional. 


Facts and figures

There were 105 active tweeters and between us we sent out 903 tweets with a total reach of 2,392,697 in the allocated 1 hour of the official chat between 8-9pm. We really did #StartTheConversation as our ‘unofficial chat’ actually continued way beyond that and even into the next day! This was a large general chats about suicide prevention with a really diverse participant group – exactly what is needed to tackle suicide – everyone working together.


Themes

The overwhelming view was that the NHS and doctors and health professional do have a role in suicide prevention, many tweeters especially mentioning the vital role of primary care. We all felt that the stigma of suicide is still a major barrier to people seeking & providing support in the NHS and that we need to eradicate this. We understood where the stigma originates: fear, poor understanding, perceived and actual lack of time, confidence, practitioners ‘running on empty’. Many participants called for more and better training in awareness, skills and how to respond safely. 

We also discussed the need for better post-suicide intervention awareness and skills. We discussed how the perceived stigma can be even worse for a health professional needing emotional support and also for males. The overwhelming theme though, was one of the need for compassion and respect and this was evident thought the whole chat.

We thought some of the solutions lay in: more resources, more awareness, ‘clinician friendly patient assessment tools’, ‘supporting each other and not judging colleagues when things go wrong’, ‘just being open and approachable to colleagues and patients can help. ‘Someone to listen’. We all discussed the need to be kinder to ourselves and our colleagues and to keep talking. There was a recurrent theme of the need to share hope and that people could be supported in to finding a way through feeling suicidal.


Post chat

Many commented how it had been a very enjoyable chat, how the hour had ‘flown’ and how uplifted they felt following our conversation – not bad for a chat about suicide prevention. Some continued the conversation into the next day and are already planning a follow-up chat!

Sincere thanks again to everyone for their contribution and we should feel so encouraged that a small but vital step to #StartTheConversation has occurred. The full chat summary will be available soon.
