The South West Zero Suicide Collaborative submitted written evidence, alongside Torbay Public Health Team, the RNLI, Samaritans, Suicide Crisis, Papyrus, MIND, Devon & Somerset Fire and Rescue and many others. Particular thanks go to Marie Ash who courageously went to give evidence in person on behalf of the Devon Suicide Prevention Alliance, and to Lynden Lynn who wrote her own personal testimony. We look forward to seeing the results of the inquiry in the new year. Links to all the evidence is available here:
Health Select Committee Inquiry into Suicide Prevention
On 22 July 2016 The House of Commons Health Select Committee launched an inquiry into the action which is necessary to improve suicide prevention in England, and in November took evidence from a wide range of contributors from across the country, including many voices from the South West.
