There is a significantly higher and rising rate of suicide in rural and remote areas compared to regional and metropolitan populations, especially among men. Living Is For Everyone (LIFE) provides resources for anyone working with those at risk of suicide. These include a national Framework to shape and guide suicide prevention activities; Research and Evidence which reviews statistics, trends, comparisons and issues in suicide and self-harm prevention; and a set of 24 practical Fact Sheets. The LIFE website provides access to LIFE News (newsletter), Professional Development Network for secure online discussion, and the LIFE library.
