Thursday 21st October 2021, 1:00 – 1:30pm (online)
We invite you to join a short online event to launch the Suicide in Children and Young People Thematic Report 2021, which is currently projected to be published on 14th October 2021 (although this date may be subject to change).
Hosted by NCMD’s Programme Lead, Professor Karen Luyt, this event will share key findings from the report, which includes analysis of deaths that were assessed as highly likely or moderately likely to be due to suicide where the child or young person died between 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020, and an analysis of deaths categorised as suicide by a CDOP, that were reviewed within the same dates. The report aims to identify the common characteristics of children and young people who die by suicide, investigate factors associated with these deaths, and identify common themes to help inform policymakers, commissioners, those providing services to children and young people, and those involved in reviewing deaths of children and young people. It also aims to contribute to the existing evidence base in this area to inform ongoing and future research into the mental health of children and young people. As this is intended to be a short dissemination event, there will not be a question & answer session at the launch.
To receive an update when the report is available, sign up to our mailing list.
