The Prime Minister has announced £2 million in funding for the Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) over the next 2 years. The funding will help to reduce suicides across the NHS, with the aim of achieving zero inpatient suicides.
It will be used to develop tools for the NHS and public and private partners. The tools will focus on:
- training to prevent suicides
- improving safety
- ensuring lessons are learnt when suicides occur
The ZSA will also develop their digital suicide prevention resource, capturing best practice and learning from across the UK and abroad, and explore the use of analytics to predict suicide risk.
