Introduction

Overview of the Research:
According to the Office for National Statistics, 5,691 suicides were registered in England and Wales in 2019, which amounts to around one death by suicide every 90 minutes. Furthermore, Yorkshire and the Humber report to having one of the highest rates of suicide in both males and females across the country.

Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) and North East Lincolnshire Mind (NEL) (your local mental health charity) are passionate about supporting anyone experiencing mental health difficulties and are in the process of setting up a new suicide prevention service accessible to adults and young people living in Hull, East Riding and North East Lincolnshire to help tackle this issue.  

Purpose of the Research:
To help us identify what support this service should offer, we are conducting a piece of research including surveys, focus groups and 1-1 interviews. We are inviting all adults and young people (aged from 14 years+) living in Hull, East Riding or North East Lincolnshire to take part in this survey.  

This survey will take around 20 minutes to complete and due to the sensitive nature of the questions, it’s very important you carefully read all of the following information and feel completely comfortable before consenting to completing the survey.

Risks of the Research:
This survey asks questions on the topic of suicidal ideation; suicidal ideation means when a person is experiencing any thoughts, ideas or plans to take their own life. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, you may find some of the questions distressing. There is support available if you do feel upset or distressed and contact details are provided at the end of the survey.

Participating in the Research:
It is your decision as to whether you want to take part in this survey. All answers will be treated in confidence and will not affect any support you are currently or may receive in the future through Hull and East Yorkshire Mind.

You are free to withdraw from the survey at any point whilst you are completing it. Once you have submitted your responses at the end, it will not be possible to withdraw your data as it will not be linked to you as an individual. 

How we will use your data:
Any personal information you provide will be stored securely. All findings from the survey will be shared with the Local Authority Public Health departments, however, personal details will not be shared. Your personal information will not be used for any other purpose. Your answers will remain anonymous – no one will know who has said what.

We take your privacy seriously and promise to never sell your data. You can find out more about your rights, how we use your personal information and how we keep your details safe and secure by reading our Privacy Policy https://www.heymind.org.uk/privacy/

Research Findings:
The findings from this survey will contribute to a Needs Analysis report that will include recommendations for the suicide prevention service due to start in Autumn 2021 through Hull and East Yorkshire Mind. A key findings report will also be shared on Hull and East Yorkshire Minds social media platforms and with local and national external organisations Hull and East Yorkshire Mind work in partnership alongside.
