Suicide: an ITV News investigation

361 men, women and children are thought to have taken their own lives in the North West so far this year.

The region has one of the highest suicide rates in the country. It also has some of the longest waiting times for mental health treatment on the NHS - with some having to wait three times longer than the six week target.

Campaigners say the situation is now at crisis point.
