Dear Life: Suicide Prevention Strategy for Coventry and Warwickshire 2022 – 2030

Closes 10 Jul 2022

Opened 24 May 2022

Overview

People in Coventry and Warwickshire are invited to have a say on the region's approach to prevent suicide.

To improve support Warwickshire County Council and Coventry City Council are working together with other local organisations and services to create a new joint approach to providing information, services and support across the area to help prevent suicide. The new strategy will outline how local organisations and services will work together to achieve the vision that no one in Coventry and Warwickshire ever feels that suicide is their only option.

It is important that the views of people from all age groups and backgrounds who live and work in Coventry and Warwickshire are included in shaping this strategy. The ambitions and aims in the strategy are based on recommendations from the Coventry and Warwickshire Mental Health and Wellbeing Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), which involved residents across Coventry and Warwickshire in 2021. The JSNA can be found here: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/directory-record/6791/coventry-and-warwickshire-mental-health-needs-assessment-2021-

Coventry and Warwickshire Suicide Prevention Partnership would like to hear YOUR thoughts on the suicide prevention strategy. The partnership will use this strategy to make positive change and needs your opinions to ensure the approach will have a positive impact.
