Framework Agreement Information

03 July 2018 - 02 July 2022

Who can take advantage of the framework?
NHS and Public Sector Organisations within the UK

Background of the framework
Within the UK suicide is responsible for the death of thousands of lives per year, with nearly 6000 occurring in 2017. This equates to a death by suicide every two hours, with many more failed attempts. Suicide is the leading cause of death among young people aged 20-34 years in the UK and it is considerably higher in men. Only 27% of people who died by suicide between 2005 and 2015 had been in contact with mental health services in the year before they died. Public sector staff play an important part in helping to prevent suicide; improving their education and awareness is vital to save lives. The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set out clear recommendations on suicide prevention and reduction, and made a commitment to reduce suicides by 10% nationally by 2020/21 and a zero suicide ambition for mental health inpatients in January 2018.
