Rise in UK Suicide Rate

The suicide rate in the UK has risen for the first time since 2013, official figures show.

The Office for National Statistics data for 2018 showed 11.2 deaths from suicide per 100,0000 people - up from 10.1 in 2019.

The ONS found three-quarters of deaths from suicide registered in 2018 were men. Those in their late 40s remain the age group with the highest suicide rate, but young men aged 20-24 saw a significant increase.
