HQSC data released on 6 July 2018 indicated that Canterbury DHB had 26 suspected suicides for the 2016/2017 year. Of these suspected suicides I am seeking information about the subgroup of patients aged 15-24 years at time of death. 1. The total number of patients in this subgroup. The number of Maori or Pacific Islander ethnicity. The number of patients commenced on SSRI antidepressant therapy within three months of death occurring and within this subgroup the specific SSRI prescribed and the number of weeks between the commencement of the SSRI and death occurring.
