Suicide prevention program 'saving rural lives'

A home-grown suicide prevention program is successfully raising awareness in rural Australia, which still has higher levels of suicide than other parts of the country.

Community Response to Eliminating Suicide, known as CORES, was developed by members of a small community in Tasmania 12 years ago.

CORES leaders are training hundreds of medical students and community members in the basics of suicide prevention.
