The Scotland dashboard includes data on:
- National suicide rates across the UK
- Suicide rate for Scotland over time
- Local authority suicide rates
- National and local authority levels of wellbeing
- Prevalence of mental health disorders
- Levels of deprivation
We hope that this data will support national and regional suicide prevention leads to understand the baseline position for their area and develop targeted improvement plans to help prevent people dying by suicide.
Please note that the dashboards are not accessible on Internet Explorer so users are recommended to use an internet platform such as Chrome (all devices), Edge (all devices) or Safari (iPhone and iPads).
This dashboard includes key data relating to suicide, prevalence of mental illness and risk factors for Scotland. To better view the data and access further information included, click on the arrows at the bottom right of the boxes containing the charts and tables.
Our charts have been developed to include a drop down function, which can allow users to access data which has been recently released and data from previous years.
You can also hover over the chart and table data to see more information e.g. the value for the region, local authority, clinical commissioning group or time period and, where appropriate, our risk rating for the area based on the methodology developed in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation in 2020.
