|Strategic framework for suicide prevention in NSW 2018-2023||5.59 MB|
This framework will guide activities in NSW until 2023 and marks the beginning of the journey towards zero suicides in NSW.
The framework has been developed by the NSW Mental Health Commission and the NSW Ministry of Health, in collaboration with people with lived experience of a suicide attempt or suicide bereavement, government agencies, mental health organisations and experts in suicide prevention. More than 1,800 people provided written submissions, participated in meetings, completed an online survey and joined community forums to contribute to the Framework’s development.
The launch of the framework was accompanied by investment in new and expanded initiatives to implement priorities under the framework including:
The NSW Mental Health Taskforce considers key government priorities and cross-portfolio matters related to mental health, including the significance of regional challenges and implementation, and enhances cross-agency collaboration. The NSW Mental Health Taskforce will provide oversight for the Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018–2023, reflecting the diverse membership required to ensure action is taken across agencies.
