Motions tabled on 28 January 2016

NDM5945
Eluned Parrott (South Wales Central)
Angela Burns (Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire)
Bethan Jenkins (South Wales West)
To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Regrets that each year in Wales between 300 and 350 people die from suicide, with latest figures showing that it is the leading cause of death for 20-34 year olds;

2. Recognises that people with a diagnosed mental health condition are at particular risk, with an estimated 90 per cent of people who attempt or die by suicide having one or more mental health condition;

3. Believes that more needs to be done to encourage people to talk openly about suicide and suicidal feelings, to raise awareness and help ensure that nobody is left to feel they are suffering alone;

4. Calls on the Welsh Government to:

a) improve the collection of data to identify those most at risk;

b) ensure follow-up support for people attending A&E after self-harm or a suicide attempt;

c) provide more effective signposting for listening and advocacy services;

d) look at the delivery of projects such as the Calm Zone in Liverpool who are providing cutting edge advice in an age appropriate way that appeals to young people, and other national and international examples of best practice; and

e) assess support available for families of individuals with mental ill-health.

Supported by:
William Powell (Mid and West Wales)
Mark Isherwood (North Wales)
