IPH response to Protect Life 2 – a draft strategy for suicide prevention in the north of Ireland
Girl alone in street at night

IPH welcomes the commitment to address inequalities in suicide rate in Northern Ireland. Those living in the most deprived communities experience a greater level of poorer physical and mental ill health coupled with difficult and challenging social circumstances. These and other factors contribute to an increased risk of suicide. For this reason IPH would endorse linkages with Making Life Better as part of a wider societal approach to improve health and wellbeing as well as reduce inequalities in all aspects of life.
