The 2024 report provies findings relating to people aged ten and above who died by suicide between 2011 and 2021 across the UK. 

The NCISH database includes a national case series of suicdie by patients under the care of mental health services over more than 26 years and leads to recommendations for clinical practice and policy to help improve safety. 

This year's report also presents data on specific topics, some of which reflect current concerns in suicide prevention, or groups who may be at increasing risk. 

These include autistic people and those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, in-patients aged under 25, patients aged 18-21 who were students, patients with a one-off assessment and those who died by suicide in public locations.
