Have your say on Southwark’s new Suicide Prevention Strategy and Action Plan

Over the last year Southwark Council, with NHS and voluntary sector partners, has been developing a new suicide prevention strategy and action plan.

Suicide continues to be a challenge in our borough. Mental health and wellbeing issues have been at the forefront of many community discussions in recent months.

Our ambition is to reduce suicides across the borough by at least 10% over the next five years, and reduce the numbers of people self-harming and attempting suicide. Join Cllr Richard Livingstone (Cabinet Lead for Mental Health) and Professor Kevin Fenton (Director of Health and Wellbeing) to find out more and have your say on the proposed way forward.
