Suicide prevention strategy

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough suicide prevention strategy supports the National suicide prevention strategy – ‘Preventing suicide in England, Dept. of Health 2012’. The key purpose of the strategy is to ensure that there is co-ordinated and integrated multi-agency agreement on the delivery of suicide prevention services that is tailored appropriately to local need and is driven by the involvement and feedback from service users.

Six priority areas for suicide prevention in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with recommendations for actions are set out in sections 9-14 of the strategy document and accompanying three year action plan.
