As an independent charity, 3Ts has consistently questioned Government committment to suicide prevention.  We call for adequately resourced statutory services for suicide prevention, including 24/7 mental health crisis centres as an alternative to A&E for those in mental health or suicidal crisis.  3Ts also calls on Government to establish a Suicide Prevention Authority along similar lines to the Road Safety Authority.  

3Ts have enjoyed Charity of the Year Partnerships with the following organisations:
