There is no single cause and no single solution to suicide. However, by working together, and using evidence-based interventions that draw on local & national intelligence, we can strive to eradicate this preventable death.

The NO MORE Suicide Partnership drives the strategic suicide prevention action across Cheshire & Merseyside.  

Suicide is preventable yet in England 13 people kill themselves every day; one person every 90 minutes in the UK. The impact on family, friends, workplaces, schools and communities can be devastating; it carries a huge financial burden for the local economy and contributes to worsening inequalities.

The NO MORE Suicide Partnership is supported by the Champs Public Health Collaborative in co-ordinating the joint actions.

The Champs Suicide Prevention Co-ordinator is Neil Boardman

Each Cheshire & Merseyside local authority has a Suicide Prevention Action Group and a local Suicide Prevention Lead
