England Prime Minister Theresa May appointed a minister for suicide prevention in line with the government’s first every Global Mental Health summit. Prime Minister May said the appointment of Health Minister Jackie Doyle-Price to the new role will help tackle the stigma surrounding suicide.

While suicide rates are falling, 4,500 people take their own lives every year. The appointment comes as ministers and officials from more than 50 countries assemble in London for the summit.

The government has promised more support in schools, bringing in new mental health support teams and offering help in measuring students’ health, including their mental wellbeing.
