We are advised by NHS England that the approach to suicide prevention in the London Borough of Haringey, which includes the Tottenham constituency, encompasses a range of wider public mental health initiatives, some of which are targeting specific population groups that are known to be at higher risk of mental ill health and suicide.

We are further advised that a multi-agency plan is being developed by the local Suicide Prevention Alliance led by the voluntary sector and supported by Haringey Council and Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group.
