Situational Approach to Suicide Prevention -Monthly Bulletin

Welcome to the first edition of our Situational Approach to Suicide Prevention Bulletin. MHIRC is part of a growing movement promoting a different way of thinking and acting to slow the alarming rate of suicide.

The increase in Australia's suicide rate is a tragedy that needs to be met with proven responses across crisis, early intervention and prevention initiatives. This new approach seeks to prevent suicide by paying particular attention to the social/situational factors that lead to suicide - such as unemployment, family breakdown, isolation, dispossession and trauma.

We welcome feedback, and would of course be very happy to have conversation with any people or organisations who are working in this vital area.
