A Study into Suicide by Prisoners (has also been known as The National Study of Self-inflicted Death by Prisoners)

Prisoners are recognised as a group with a high risk of suicide by the National Suicide Prevention Strategy for England and consistently higher rates of suicide in prison compared to the general population have been found. 
This study aimed to provide a detailed, independent, examination of all self-inflicted deaths by prisoners in England and Wales from 1999 to 2015.
There has been a downward trend in the number of self-inflicted deaths in prisons in England and Wales over the last decade, however prisoners remain a high risk group with the number of self-inflicted deaths in the prison population remaining high in comparison to the general population.
Prevention should continue to highlight the importance of safer cells, and the identification and treatment of mental disorder.

The final report listing publications can be found below.
