We developed a Social Risk Factors Map, a starting point for understanding suicide in your local area. It shows risk factors and key causal factors that contribute to difference in local suicide rates.
Our Facts for Action, Resource Library and Case Studies sections provide information about social risk factors that can contribute to suicide as well as innovative resources and initiatives that have been developed to tackle them.
We are developing a more extensive interactive map, a brand new series of ‘Facts for Action’, data dashboards and regional workspaces so suicide prevention leaders from across the public sector, non-profit and the corporate world can come together and discuss solutions to local risk factors.
The Department of Health and Social Care launched our Suicide Prevention Consensus Statement on 30th August 2021. The resource aims to help health professionals to understand consent, confidentiality and information sharing in mental healthcare and suicide prevention.
