Suicide Statistics - People Disabled

Karl Bloxham made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Karl Bloxham to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Karl Bloxham

Dear Ministry of Health,

I refer to the follow OIA requested, where the annual suicide statistics were provided;

https://fyi.org.nz/request/3145-suicide-...

I also refer to the following OIA request relating to persons on ACC weekly comp:

https://fyi.org.nz/request/6679/response...

The information provided is a combined selfharm and suicide, they are defined as active and inactive.

These individuals are either receiving treatment cost or there dependents are receiving financial support. The AC Act needs to establish a significant Mental Injury for these entitlement.

So i ask for the information that allows ACC not to use ICD-10 x60-x84 codes for staticial reporting and the reason the annual suicide statistics do not include a component of those person on weekly compensation who commit suicide or selfharm

The statistical data could be as low as 4% and high as 25%,

ACC have stated that a person in acute state are informed to get hold of DHB mental health unit, however the MH Units in most cases conclude the individual has a mental injury vs mental illness, therefore they refer them back to ACC.

The individual is left without assistance, whether they have a mental injury from a physical injury claim accepted or not.

So i ask for the information relating to how ACC and the DHB should administer a person at risk and which entity is ultimately responsible.

Yours faithfully,

Karl Bloxham
