Suicide prevention strategy

Suicide is a major public health issue that has a wide ranging impact on families, communities and society. Suicide is not inevitable and many deaths can be prevented if local organisations work together.

The Joint Cambridgeshire and Peterborough suicide prevention strategy 2014-2017  represents the vision for suicide prevention for all people in our area and is being developed by multiple local partners and stakeholders across public and third sector organisations.

Our local strategy is based on the national suicide prevention strategy which is  called Preventing suicide in England - a cross-government outcomes strategy to save lives September 2012.

Importantly, the development of our local strategy has taken into account the feedback from local organisations and individuals who are involved in suicide prevention.

Six priorities have been identified to help prevent local suicide. This includes ways of reducing suicide for people who are at extra risk and providing better support to those bereaved or affected by suicide.
