Suicide Prevention

Suicide Prevention

This month we have had World Suicide Prevention Day and the RUOK? Day. Both events highlighting fhow we talk about and discuss suicide in the  community.

I would like to make others aware of the  Community Guidelines for Discussing Suicide project in NSW.

Project Update –

The most recent edition of the project update for the Community Guidelines for Discussing Suicide project (an Initiative of the NSW Ministry of Health) is now available online.  You can access it directly by clicking on the link above.  The update briefly outlines progress in the scoping and consultation phase of the project that is now nearing completion.

Scoping and consultation documents –

Since the Hunter Institute has completed the process of migrating to a new website we have now released a series of our planning documents for the project (which can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on the link above).  These include:

  • Analysis of current resources and program approaches;
  • Summary of the literature;
  • Outcomes report: Consultation forums.

The project team will soon work on analysis of the focus group stage and the report will be posted online upon completion.

Keeping in touch

Please feel free to pass on this blog to your networks and colleagues.  If you know of any additional people who would like to be kept informed about the project, please send an email to the Communication Officer, Mimi Ilinkovski, on or call 02 4924 6929.
