A reduction in the death rate from suicide is a priority in the Surrey’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, signalling the commitment of partners across the NHS and Local Government to work together to save lives lost to suicide through both whole population and targeted actions.

This strategy will harness that commitment to achieve the following aim:

To reduce suicide by 10% by 2021 through the coordinated actions of our respective organisations.

Our ethos in Surrey, is that every single suicide is a tragedy and our ultimate ambition is to eradicate suicide.  We will begin with committing to a zero suicide approach among those who are known to our mental health services. 

Why We Are Consulting

One suicide is one too many. Reducing suicide is everyones priority. We are consulting to ensure that we have a partnership approach to reducing suicides.

What Happens Next

The feedback will be included in the Surrey suicide prevention stratgey.
