Howard League – Preventing Prison Suicide: Staff perspectives

Centre for Mental Health and the Howard League for Penal Reform are working together to investigate suicide prevention in prisons. The work explores how police, the judiciary, prisons and health care providers can collaborate to prevent people from losing their lives through suicide in prison. This is the fourth in a series of briefings. Centre for Mental Health’s earlier briefing presented perspectives of people in or with previous experience of prison (Centre for Mental Health and Howard League, 2016). This briefing discusses the perspectives of staff working in prison as well as those reviewing clinical care post suicide.
