Suicide – national confidential inquiry report

On 14 April, the 2022 annual National Confidential Inquiry report into suicide was released. It notes: ‘Established risk factors for suicide – such as previous self-harm, alcohol or drug misuse, multiple mental health diagnoses, living alone – are common among patients who die by suicide, and should form the basis of risk management. Responding to loss of contact with services is an important prevention measure. Assessment of risk should include significant dates and anniversaries which may then form part of safety planning.’ Download from this link.
