The Centre is based in the University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry. Professor Keith Hawton is its Director. The overall research programme of the Centre is focused on investigation of the causes, treatment and prevention of suicidal behaviour.
We do not provide a treatment service or advice for those in
crisis. If you are in crisis or feeling suicidal we urge you to seek
help from your general practitioner, through a telephone helpline
service such as Samaritans
(UK telephone number 08457 90 90 90), or by discussing your problems
with a friend or colleague. Befrienders
Worldwide offers a comprehensive directory of crisis helplines
We are also not able to discuss individual cases. Sources of help for people bereaved by suicide can be found on our links page.
