Abstract A cross-Government suicide prevention strategy (2012) gives Local Government the responsibility for coordinating prevention. The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) has a devolved mandate to improve mental health outcomes across 7 constituent local councils through its Thrive programme and a Zero Suicide ambition has been championed to reduce local rates, but with limited knowledge of how best to target scant public resource to reduce community-based risk. Data on demographic characteristics, social circumstances and associated trigger-factors were collected through an audit of coronial suicide verdicts across three Coroner jurisdictions. Relative-risk in comparison to published background population data was established by calculating risk-ratios to determine local incidence and quantify local elevated risk of suicide among populations and communities of interest.Headline significant relative-risks were established for: adult males; those employed in skilled trades occupations; long-term unemployed; and those living with non-related persons. 20% of deaths were recorded as problem drinkers and headline suicide-related associated triggers events were identified - e.g. relationship breakdown, bereavement, personal indebtedness, and contact with the criminal justice system.
