Gloucestershire Suicide Prevention Partnership
Suicide remains a national and local public health priority. Reducing the suicide rate in Gloucestershire has been identified as a key area for improvement in the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
At its July 2015 meeting, the Gloucestershire Health & Wellbeing Board approved the Gloucestershire Suicide Prevention Strategy - July 2015 to June 2020
The strategy seeks to outline the shared aim of preventing suicide in Gloucestershire. The strategy has been created by, and is accountable to, the Gloucestershire Suicide Prevention Partnership Forum (GSPPF).
The GSPPF comprises partners from public, private and the voluntary and community sector, as well as people with lived experience, who have worked together to co-produce the strategy.
