Preventing prison suicide

2016 has been the worst year on record for prison suicides, according to a report from the Howard League, with 102 suicides recorded since the beginning of the year.

The report highlights the action that needs to be taken to improve the safety and mental health of prisoners in England and Wales. It calls for a reduction in the use of solitary confinement and an increase in staffing.
