Joy Hibbins

Joy Hibbins

Joy Hibbins is the founder and chief executive of charity Suicide Crisis. Their crisis centre has attracted national and international interest because of its zero-suicide achievement: there has never been a suicide of a client under their care. Joy has given evidence about their work to a UK parliamentary select committee, and their work has fed into the Ministry of Health’s new suicide prevention strategy in New Zealand. Joy has personal experience of suicide crisis, which prompted her to open the centre in 2012. In 2019 she received the British Empire Medal for services to vulnerable people in the Queen’s New Year Honours List. She is regularly asked to comment on issues relating to suicide and suicide prevention in the national press, including appearances on the BBC and Sky News and articles in the Guardian and the Telegraph. Joy currently resides in Gloucestershire.
