SUICIDE PREVENTION STRATEGIES
Improving safety and reducing access to means of suicide
Restricting access to the means of suicide is one of the most effective suicide prevention strategies, however local suicide trends and common means are not well understood. There is a lack of timely data, which is important as implementation of any interventions must be informed by what is actually happening in the local community.
This group will use results from a newly developed Suicide Audit Report to help the community develop a long-term, strategic approach and drive local efforts in safety and prevention.
