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 116 123), or by discussing your problems with a friend or colleague. Befrienders Worldwide offers a comprehensive directory of crisis helplines worldwide.
We are also not able to discuss individual cases. Sources of help for people bereaved by suicide can be found on our links page.
