Suicide prevention in Newham

Practitioners Resource

Every week, at least 10 Londoners die from suicide. Poor mental health is one of the biggest challenges facing our residents and it is often much higher in certain communities, such as those living in poverty and those in some minority groups.

The Newham Suicide and Self-harm Prevention strategy, developed in collaboration with a wide network of partners, outlines seven priority areas and forty actions to help prevent suicides in Newham and provide better support for those affected by suicide.

These pages will help you to support others by providing information about a range of mental health topics, local services including where and how to access help.
