Have you been affected by suicide? Help shape Oxon suicide prevention strategy

on Tue, 10/09/2019 - 6:14pm

Oxfordshire residents that have been affected by suicide are urged to give their feedback to help shape a suicide prevention strategy.

Between 2016 and 2018 there were a total of 155 deaths by suicide in Oxfordshire. Of these, 126 of these were men which means that deaths in men outnumbered those in women by 4:1.

The Oxfordshire suicide prevention group is about to revise its action plan and develop a strategy and wants to hear from people in Oxfordshire who have been affected by suicide or who may have had suicidal thoughts themselves.

There is a determination to reduce the numbers of death by suicide therefore we are asking residents to complete the survey www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/suicidepreventionsurvey (click) to help achieve this understanding.
