Abstract IntroductionIn 2015, the 37 NHS organisations and Local Authorities in Greater Manchester (GM) signed a landmark devolution agreement with the Government including health and social care in the City region. This offered an opportunity to tackle suicide prevention across GM through collective efforts. A GM Suicide Prevention Strategy has been developed linking to the GM Mental Health programme. Each day in the UK, around 13 people take their own life. Suicide has a profound long term impact on the lives of loved ones, and the community.MethodsA GM approach to suicide prevention aimed to achieve parity of access, through a combination of a framework for action to which all boroughs pledged their support and the potential for economies of scale when commissioning interventions for the region. Successful activities in individual boroughs have been identified in order to scale them up where possible.In order to inform this strategy, a suicide audit process was developed to involved all ten local authorities working together in order to create a robust local picture. This process involved four coroner areas, and included developing information sharing agreements across the boroughs. ConclusionA strategy for the prevention of suicide across GM has been developed, a GM Executive established and a GM audit completed. Developing the strategy and the audit involved building on partnerships and processes with a focus on prevention, and addressing inequalities.
