Government publishes Suicide Prevention Strategy

Sets out plans for next five years

Government has published its Suicide Prevention Strategy for the next five years.

The 'Saving Lives; Ending Suicide' document, from Public Health, sets out a vision to make the Isle of Man "a place where suicide is a thing of the past".

Between 2006 and 2021, 156 people took their own lives on the Island.

Public Health says the starting point of this strategy is that suicide is preventable. If this is the case, it says, the logical ambition for the Isle of Man is ‘zero suicides’
