Mental health promotion Mental health Preventative health Suicide Youth suicide Australia

Suicide Prevention Australia is the national peak body for the suicide prevention sector.

They designed the State of the Nation in Suicide Prevention survey to gather in-depth intelligence from our membership and the broader suicide prevention sector. As the national peak body, it informs their role as a clear, collective voice for the sector and supports them to work towards our ambition of a world without suicide.

The State of the Nation in Suicide Prevention is structured in three parts:

  1. State of the sector - looking at the type of organisations in the sector, their priorities and challenges and the current operating environment
  2. State of the community - looking at the current and emerging risks for suicide prevention across the community as well as those groups most at risk
  3. State of the platform - looking at the key priorities of our National Policy Platform including whole-of-government reform, accurate, reliable data and workforce strategy.
