Description

The Queensland Suicide Prevention Action Plan 2015-17 (this Action Plan) aims to reduce suicide and its impact on Queenslanders.

This Action Plan outlines actions under four priority areas:
1. Stronger community awareness and capacity so that families, workplaces and communities are better equipped to support and respond to people at risk of, and impacted by, suicide.
2. Improved service system responses and capacity to ensure people at risk, including those who have attempted suicide, get the support they need, when and where they need it.
3. Focused support for vulnerable groups to address the specific needs of groups and communities experiencing higher rates, and at greater risk, of suicide.
4. A stronger more accessible evidence base to drive continuous improvement in research, policy, practice and service delivery
