Suicide Prevention Strategy

In Lincolnshire between 80 to 90 people end their life by suicide every year. Nationally, one in five people will think about suicide in their lifetime. Every suicide is an individual tragedy and has a devastating impact upon family, friends, and the wider community. Whilst one person alone might not be able to prevent a particular suicide, if we work together as a community, suicide is preventable.

Across Lincolnshire, suicide prevention efforts are coordinated through the suicide prevention steering group (SPSG). The SPSG work to deliver the Lincolnshire suicide prevention strategy which has recently been refreshed for 2024-2028. The new strategy contains eight key commitments for action over the next five years and is underpinned by an annual action plan.
