The aim of these profiles is to help develop understanding at a local level and support an intelligence driven approach to suicide prevention.
These profiles collate and present a range of publicly available data on suicide, including:
- associated prevalence
- risk factors
- service contact among groups at increased risk
This tool allows planners, providers and stakeholders to profile their area and benchmark against similar populations.
