Programme overview

The Mental Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme is delivered by the National Confidential Inquiry into Suicide and Safety in Mental Illness (NCISH). The inquiry examines cases of suicide for people who died by suicide and who had been in contact with secondary and specialist mental health services in the previous 12 months. The findings are presented in an annual report and published via both the HQIP and NCISH websites

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:

• alcohol and drug report (2024)

Additional information on all HQIP-commissioned projects is available on the NHS Trusts page, which includes the recommendations repository, infographics compendium, 9 month publication schedule, impact report, and National Clinical Audit and Enquiries Directory.
