House of Commons – Health Committee, suicide prevention interim report Dec 2016

The inquiry into suicide prevention received over 150 submissions. They heard oral evidence from a range of organisations and individuals including those bereaved by suicide or with lived experience of suicidal ideation, from whom they heard powerful evidence both about their experiences and about the work they are now doing to help prevent suicide. The health committee also visited Liverpool to hear from representatives from the Cheshire and Merseyside Suicide Prevention Network and organisations seeking to improve mental health and wellbeing through sport and by reaching out to those in distress who would not otherwise contact services to seek help. The Government has indicated that a refresh of the suicide prevention strategy will be published in January 2017. This interim report has been published in order to set out the key messages we have heard from witnesses throughout the inquiry.   The full report can be found at: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201617/cmselect/cmhealth/300/300.pdf
