Abstract Introduction
East Sussex County Council Public Health together with the Design Council are implementing an innovative design-led programme with multiple local stakeholders to develop a shared:understanding of key issues surrounding deaths at the site;Commitment to implement site-specific plans to prevent avoidable deaths. East Sussex has an area of outstanding natural beauty, a popular place for locals and tourists, as well as a site of special scientific interest. Unfortunately it has become a renowned public place for suicide where deaths from suicide are increasing. 60 people took their lives in 2018, twice the number in previous years, and over 500 conversations took place with suicidal people. In the last 10 years over 80% of deaths are of non-residents, who travel from all over the UK and overseas, making this a local, national and international issue. In 2015, an in-depth review was commissioned from University of Exeter which made recommendations for preventing deaths at the site. Whilst many interventions were implemented, the unique complexities of the site impeded the progress of others. Methods : 38 stakeholders from 20 organisations are engaged in the 5-day workshop programme that uses design methodologies to review and reframe the issues surrounding suicide at the site.
The workshops conclude in July, and evaluation report with recommendations in August 2019.
Early learning and outcomes will be shared at the conference including our reflections on using innovative design methodologies. Adding to the evolving evidence of using design to address site specific suicide prevention plans. External funding details NA
