LGA/ADPH suicide prevention SLI programme

October 9, 2019 in ADPH Updates, Mental Health, Publications, Sector Led Improvement by admin

The LGA and ADPH are pleased bring to your attention the suicide prevention sector led improvement programme prospectus. The following support is available 2019/20:

  • National: a series of tools, products and events designed to provide wider and easier access to the good practice, learning and existing resources. This includes a series of webinars and a masterclass in Spring 2020.
  • Regional: grant funding allocated to ADPH networks to build on and support regional suicide prevention SLI activity
  • Local: bespoke expert support for up to twelve local authorities and partners who self-identify as facing significant delivery challenges locally around suicide prevention.

This prospectus provides more detail on each of the elements.

Expressions of interest in bespoke support are now open, closing 5PM 1st November 2019. The two-page-long submissions should cover the following two areas:

  1. Describe the suicide prevention delivery challenge to be explored by the bespoke support
  2. Provide evidence of local need

If the number of expressions of interest exceed the current level of support, priority will be given to areas whose significant local challenges would not be successfully addressed by other elements of the programme, in conjunction with the two elements set out above. Further details of each aspect can be found in the attached prospectus and on the website: www.local.gov.uk/suicide-prevention
