This annual report on England’s cross-government suicide prevention strategy, ‘Preventing suicide in England: one year on’, sets out key actions that local areas can take to prevent suicides.
- Preventing suicide in England: one year on first annual report on the cross-government outcomes strategy to save lives
- Statistical update on suicide
- Information sharing and suicide prevention: consensus statement
The report highlights the importance of responsive and high quality care for people who self-harm. It also advocates better sharing of information between organisations and families, so that healthcare professionals will be better able to:
- listen to the views of family members and friends, who may offer insight into a loved ones’ state of mind which can help with care or treatment
- support people who may want to share information with their families or friends about thoughts they might be having, and
- provide advice to families and carers about support services available and steps they can take to help keep a loved one safe.
