How would you describe your organisation's role in contributing to the delivery of NSPA’s outcomes to reducing suicide and improving support for those bereaved or affected by suicide?

Public Health Lincolnshire is leading the strategic Suicide Prevention Group in Lincolnshire. We are responsible for faciliatating the parthnership approach of the Suicide Prevention Group.

What are the current challenges to delivering NSPA’s outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

In order to achieve the deemed outcome of helping reduce suicide in Lincolnshire we need to achieve the following:
1.  Clarity of pathways
2. Development of Suicide Prevention awareness messages
3. Learning from data, research and monitoring. To do this we will need to establish an evaluation method.

What are your organisation’s priority actions for the next 12 months, to contribute to the reduction of suicide and improved support for those bereaved or affected by suicide, and which address the challenges you have set out?

We are currently establishing a number of Task and Finish implementation groups in key areas: Awareness, Prevention, Data Research and Monitoring.
