The North East’s Growing Suicide Crisis

We Care Suicide Prevention

Unravelling the Causes and Offering Support 

Soaring Suicide Rates in the North East: A Disturbing Reality New data released by the Office for National Statistics reveals a deeply concerning truth: in 2021, the North East of England registered 328 suicide-related deaths, translating to one tragic loss every 27 hours. This disheartening statistic places the North East as the most affected region in England for suicide fatalities per population.  

Factors Fuelling the Suicide Crisis in the North East 

Despite progress in raising awareness and promoting mental health initiatives, the suicide rate in the North East continues to climb.

A myriad of risk factors contributes to this devastating trend, including mounting debt, financial strain, and housing instability. These factors have only been magnified by the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, making it increasingly difficult for individuals to cope with life’s challenges.
