Guidance to help reduce the rate of suicide

14 September 2018

National Institute for Health and Care ExcellenceThe National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has produced guidance to reduce the rate of suicide and help those bereaved or affected by people taking their own lives. It aims to:

  • help local services work more effectively together to prevent suicide;
  • identify and help people at risk;
  • prevent suicide in places where it is currently more likely.

The guidance is part of a sustained effort to reduce the rate of suicide in the UK, reflected in figures from the Office for National Statistics, which show that the number of reported suicides has decreased for the third consecutive year.
