The Mental Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme is delivered by the National Confidential Inquiry into Suicide and Homicide by People with Mental Illness (NCISH). The inquiry examines suicide, and homicide committed by people who had been in contact with secondary and specialist mental health services in the previous 12 months and publishes this in an annual report.
The inquiry also conducts one-to-two additional studies a year in specific topic areas. Study topics are selected through an open submission process and anyone is invited to submit proposals for consideration as possible forthcoming studies. The next topic-specific reports to be published will be:
- Personality disorder (Autumn 2017)
- Review of risk assessment for suicide (2018)
- The role of substance misuse services (2018)
