The following should be read in conjunction with regional procedure 2.11 Self-harm and suicidal behaviour.

Further information is also available on the Suicide prevention and Self-harm pages of the SSCP website.

Suicide Prevention

The suicide prevention care pathway provides:

  • A systematic approach to identifying and addressing the needs of children and young people at risk of suicide
  • Risk assessment guidance, early intervention questions and baseline risk assessment questions
  • A care pathway flowchart for workers to follow
  • Additional supporting information and guidance

The suicide prevention care pathway aims to:

  • Standardise the response of agencies and workers to young people who exhibit suicidal thoughts (thoughts) and behaviours
  • Equip workers with the practice guidance and tools needed to deal with these issues - from early intervention through to complex and ‘at risk of serious harm’ situations
  • Establish the necessary support mechanisms for workers dealing with  suicidal thoughts and behaviours

Who is this document for?

It is primarily for use by front line workers in contact with:

  • young people who are identified as being at risk from suicidal thoughts or behaviours
  • young people who need referral to, and support from, specialist services as a result of disclosing suicidal thoughts and/or attempted suicide.
