Suicide Awareness Day

EDM number 1601 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 10/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Mental health.

That this House on Suicide Awareness Day extends sincere sympathy to every home that has been touched by the loss of a loved one through suicide; notes that Northern Ireland has seen the loss of more people from suicide after the Belfast Agreement than through the troubles themselves; further notes that despite having a 25 per cent prevalence of mental health problems in Northern Ireland, which is the highest of all regions of the UK, Northern Ireland is not adequately funded to deal with suicide; reaffirms the pledge to ensure that there is funding and help available to address these horrific statistics; and asks the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make contact with the Permanent Secretary for Health in Northern Ireland to discuss this issue in depth and work towards a co-ordinated funded UK-wide Suicide Strategy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
