This conference focuses on the important issues of Suicide Prevention. 

“It is estimated that annually 800,000 people across the world die by suicide, with 5,316 people sadly taking their life in England in 2019. It is of the utmost importance that we do all we can to reduce this number as far as possible, so that fewer people die by suicide. But it is also of the utmost importance that when, tragically, somebody does end their life by suicide their family, friends and broader community who have been bereaved have whatever support they need in place to manage their loss.”

Department of Health March 2021

“The NHS Five Year Forward View for Mental Health was published in February 2016 and set out the start of a ten year journey for the transformation of mental health services. It included a commitment to reduce the rate of suicides in England by 10% by 2020 (compared to 2015 levels). Whilst the NHS Long Term Plan (January 2019) suggested this target would be met, the rate of suicides in England in 2020 was almost the same as the 2015 rate.”

Suicide prevention: Policy and strategy, UK Parliament 25th January 2022

“Each and every suicide is a tragedy, which causes devastating and permanent impacts on families, friends and broader communities.”
