A record 119 people killed themselves in prisons in England and Wales in 2016 – an increase of 29 (32%) on the previous year, according to Ministry of Justice figures.

The record number of self-inflicted deaths in prison – equal to one every three days – compares with the previous high of 96 in 2004 and represents a doubling of the jail suicide rate since 2012.

The sessions have been arranged by State of Mind Chair Malcolm Rae OBE and were delivered with Danny Sculthorpe and Jimmy Gittins

State of Mind would like to wish all those in attendance all the very best for the future
