Suicide - the facts

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 49 and women aged between 20 and 34. More than 200 people a year take their own life in Greater Manchester.

For every suicide that occurs, there are up to 20 more suicide attempts and one in five of us have had suicidal thoughts.

Together we can help to prevent suicide.
