Suicide Prevention: NIHR Programme Grant
A multi-centre programme of clinical and public health research to guide health service priorities for preventing suicide in England
Every year in England there are nearly 5,000 suicides and an estimated 200,000 hospital attendances following self-harm ('attempted suicide').
The overall aim of our research is to provide new evidence to help prevent suicide and improve the care of people who self-harm. The programme was developed in response to three key issues identified in the National Suicide Prevention Strategy 2012:
- The adverse impact of the economic crisis on suicide
- Improving the care of people who self-harm
- Identifying and reducing access to high-lethality methods of suicide.
The research is a collaboration between these institutions:
