Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018-2023

The   Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018-2023  was developed by the NSW Mental Health Commission and the NSW Ministry of Health in collaboration with people with lived experience of suicide attempts or losing a loved one to suicide, government agencies, mental health organisations and experts in suicide prevention.

The Framework identifies 5 priority action areas to reduce suicide in NSW:

  • Building individual and community resilience and wellbeing 
    To help people cope with tough times 
  • Strengthening the community response to suicide and suicidal behaviour
    To help people recognise those who are at risk of suicide, and take steps to support them
  • Supporting excellence in clinical services and care 
    To ensure people have access to appropriate, high quality clinical services and care, including broader supports and services 
  • Promoting a collaborative, coordinated and integrated approach 
    To reduce duplication and gaps
  • Innovating for a stronger evidence base 
    To know and use interventions that work to prevent suicide.
