Solutions that work: addressing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide rates

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project has released their report into indigenous suicide rates. "Solutions that work: what the evidence and our people tell us is a milestone in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and wellbeing," said Commission CEO Dr Peggy Brown.

The report evaluated 88 suicide prevention programs Australia-wide to identify and analyse the most successful. The report's 17 recommendations to government, including that local Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services remain preferred mental health service providers, are key to addressing the unacceptable rate of suicide in Indigenous communities.
