Suicide prevention is everyone's business

Best Practice - Conference Programme 2021


Suicide prevention is everyone's business

13 Oct 2021
GP Clinical Theatre 2

Good quality, timely intelligence is the life blood of effective, and efficient organisational prevention strategies. Reducing the prevalence of suicide in our communities requires our partners and systems to connect in a way never seen before. Development of our Real Time Surveillance System has enabled us to become intelligence led in all that we do together to prevent and reduce the harm suicide creates for many. Our approach, underpinned by clear principles, where suicide prevention is now seen as everyone’s business, has connected our services, our communities and our combined efforts in a meaningful way. We are making a difference.

  • Whole system approach to data sharing
  • Collaboration and shared ownership - Key principles.
  • Early action leading to prevention- Understanding Risk
