It is reported that suicide by mental health patients had risen, to 1,333 deaths in 2011 (England), following a previous fall. The rise probably reflected the rise in suicide in the general population, which had been attributed to existing economic difficulties. The proportion of patients dying by suicide who were unemployed had risen in England and Northern Ireland. An apparent rise in Scotland was largely explained by a coding change, but the adjusted figure for patient suicide was still comparatively high. Increases in Wales and Northern Ireland were based on small numbers and should be treated with caution. (Edited publisher abstract)

The need for better mental health care in prisons has been evident for some time. Reports throughout the last two decades have shown that prisoners have dramatically higher rates of the whole range of mental health problems compared to the general population. This report examines what has been achieved in prison mental health over recent years from a number of different personal perspectives and individual observations of working in England. It looks at the specific achievements of inreach teams and of efforts to divert offenders from custody. It also looks more broadly at the rapid growth of the prison population during the same period and the treatment of offenders with mental health problems outside as well as inside prison.

This report by the National Confidential Inquiry examines the details of individual cases of suicide and homicide by people with mental illness. In the time covered by the report (six years for suicides, five years for homicides) there were around 5,000 suicides and around 500 homicides in Scotland. However, the Inquiry found that only 28% of the people who died by suicide and 12% of those who committed a homicide had recently been mental health patients. The report highlights the key areas of clinical practice where improvement is needed and suggests what changes could be made. Two points are emphasised. One is the low risk to the general public from mental health patients; the other is that people who need mental health care are at times imprisoned by the courts. Recommendations are made.
