This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on Twitter #ZeroSuicide

In January 2019 the government has published the first cross-government suicide prevention plan. The plan includes:

  • every local authority putting an effective suicide prevention plan in place
  • ensuring every mental health trust has a zero-suicide ambition plan for mental health inpatients by the end of 2019
  • every prison putting actions in place to reduce suicides and self-harm and improve staff awareness and training
  • addressing the specific needs of the highest risk groups, including middle-aged men, with £25 million funding
  • improving research on things that can be linked to suicide, such as debt and gambling addiction

Chaired by Steve Mallen, Co-Founder, Zero Suicide Alliance, this timely conference focuses on preventing suicide and saving lives with a particular focus on delivering Zero Suicide in people who have been in contact with Mental Health settings in line with the end of 2019 target.  

“To address suicide prevention in mental health settings, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care launched a zero-suicide ambition across the NHS in January 2018, starting with mental health inpatients but looking to expand to include all mental health patients. In line with this, all mental health trusts will have a plan for the zero-suicide ambition in place by the end of 2018/19. This work will support the reduction of suicides by 10 percent using the £25million of investment over the next three years and a national quality improvement programme being led by NHS England to improve suicide prevention and safety across the NHS.”
