Suicide Prevention Strategy
The Suicide Prevention Strategy is the drive to reduce local suicides, and is led by a Kent and Medway multi-agency suicide prevention steering group, formed in November 2009.
This group has published a Suicide Prevention Strategy for Kent and Medway. There is an implementation plan setting out actions and accountabilities, which has already made good progress.
The Kent and Medway multi-agency suicide prevention steering group is comprised of representation from a variety of agencies including:
- British Transport Police
- Canterbury Christchurch University
- Kent Coroners
- Kent County Council
- Kent Police
- NHS Kent and Medway
- Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT)
- Medway Council
- Network Rail

- West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
- the Samaritans
It is chaired by a Public Health Kent County Council representative.
