Features of mental health organisations and patient suicide rates

Project Details


Previous studies by the National Confidential Inquiry into Suicide and Safety in Mental Health (NCISH) have shown that improvements to mental health services, through the implementation of specific NCISH recommendations can contribute to suicide prevention. This UK-wide study was a continuation of our earlier work and examined the association between suicide rates and the features of mental health service organisation.

The study was commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and findings have been published in a report and as a journal article in the Lancet Psychiatry.
