The Suicide Prevention Network involves more than 20 organisations. Our vision is to make Hertfordshire a county where no-one ever gets to a point where they feel suicide is their only option.
Hertfordshire suicide audit
The suicide audit aims to give a view of deaths by suicide within Hertfordshire compared to the rest of the UK.
In time, it will also enable a year-on-year comparison to identify county-specific trends. This information can be used to inform the suicide prevention strategy and planned actions.
The 2018 audit includes 95 deaths between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2018. Because of the time delay between a death occurring and the inquest taking place, the majority of deaths occurred in 2017.
The 2017 audit includes 74 deaths between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2017. Because of the time delay between a death occurring and the inquest taking place, the majority of deaths occurred in 2016.
The 2016 audit includes a total of 56 deaths by suicide between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2016.
