Description: 

In April 2012, processes were introduced in Northern Ireland to closely monitor and respond to sudden deaths when possible suicide is suspected. Following these deaths, PSNI officers collect information on a Sudden Death form (SD1) which is passed to Health and Social Care Trusts and the Public Health Agency for the purpose ensuring timely support is provided to individuals and communities. Following a possible death by suicide, there is an increased risk that vulnerable individuals may copy the behaviour, this is known as contagion.
