Ideas for the new Suicide Prevention Strategy for Hounslow 2022 – 2025

Closed 25 Mar 2022

Opened 3 Mar 2022

Results updated 6 May 2022

The Public Health team will be launching a new suicide prevention strategy for the London Borough of Hounslow in September 2022 and wanted to consult internal and external partners on their views in relation to the ambition and priorities for the new strategy.

The positive responses to the proposed ambition and priorities means that they’ll be used in the new strategy.  We will also ensure that ways to support men and young people are considered throughout the strategy and will look to work in partnership with a wider range of organisations.

A full public consultation on the new strategy will take place later in the year.

Overview

We will be refreshing our suicide prevention strategy over the next few months.  At this stage, we want to hear from internal and external partners and stakeholders such as mental health services, emergency services and voluntary organisations.

Your comments will help to develop our draft strategy before we go out to a formal consultation with residents in May.  The final strategy will be published in September 2022.

The previous Suicide Prevention Strategy for Hounslow is attached below.  As is a copy of the latest data which will inform the new strategy.

News: Rethink are offering Community Grants to organisations in North West London who are planning projects that aid suicide prevention or improve mental wellbeing.

Why your views matter

Suicide in Hounslow cannot be reduced without the involvement of many different partners.  We need your opinions to help us shape the new strategy.

What happens next

This survey is now closed.  Responses will be analysed and will be used to help create a formal consultation on the draft suicide prevention strategy later this year.
