Social Work and Suicide
About 3,000 people take their own lives in England and Wales every year. Far more widespread is the phenomenon of attempted suicide. Incidence rates are always likely to be incomplete and at best may be viewed as estimates, but figures in the order of an annual rate of 200:10,000 for men aged over 15 and 300:10,000 for women over 15 years of age are widely quoted.
