The findings and recommendations from NCISH’s 2021 Annual Report and NCISH’s study of suicide by middle-aged men were presented at the 7th NCISH virtual conference in June 2021. 

We were joined by our Chair Dr Kate Lovatt (Royal College of Psychiatrists), guest speaker Steve Gilbert (suicide attempt survivor and Anti-Racism consultant), and panellists Professor Jenny Shaw (NCISH Head of Homicide Research) and Dr Jacqui Dyer (Mental Health equalities advisor, NHS England and Health Education England).

UK-wide data slides 

The following series of slides present data items previously published in our report Avoidable Deaths (2006) but which were not included in our Annual Report. The findings are based on the period 2008-2018. Due to a reduction in our homicide programme, we only present general population homicide characteristics and the number of homicides by people in contact with mental health services. Homicide data for Northern Ireland are not included, due to small numbers.
