Haringey Suicide Prevention Group (HSPG) is an inter-agency group hosted by Mind in Haringey, and developed by our partners in public health and the NHS. Collectively and collaboratively we lead the strategy for suicide prevention in Haringey. The group brings together and coordinates organisations across Haringey to review services, identify gaps, and action a strategy to reduce and prevent suicide.
HSPG’s mission is to:
Bring together individuals, groups and agencies working to prevent suicide
Better understand the problem of suicide as an urgent public health issue
Share knowledge and coordinate activities to prevent suicide and support those bereaved by suicide
HSPG meets on a quarterly basis to coordinate local services and highlight or share key information with participants. Individuals with experience or those from local services who are interested in joining the conversation are most welcome.
The national strategy is implemented locally by three key means:
a local suicide audit to reveal the pattern of suicides, groups at risk and factors relevant to suicide prevention planning;
a multi-agency suicide prevention group bringing together statutory and voluntary organisation necessary to support the development and implementation of suicide prevention interventions;
a suicide prevention strategy and/or action plan based on the national strategy and local intelligence on suicide risk (the present document).
How can I access it?
HSPG members include statutory and non-statutory organisations, GPs and Mental Health professionals alongside local residents who have been affected by suicide.
HSPG members have been working together since June 2015 to create the Haringey Suicide Prevention Plan (HSPP). In 2019 the HSPP was approved by the Health and Wellbeing Board and we are now working hard to implement it.
The next HSPG meeting is 21st October 2021. If you are local to Haringey and would like to join the conversation about Suicide Prevention, as an individual or on behalf of a business, please contact us.
