The NT Suicide Prevention Strategic Action Plan 2015-2018, works in conjunction with the NT Government’s overall Framing the Future strategy to build individual and community resilience, increase suicide prevention capacity and provide intervention and support to save Territory lives.
Awareness, prevention, intervention and postvention are covered in the key components of the four year plan which aims to:

1. Promote a culturally responsive approach by working to include cultural frameworks and language into service provision and information
2. Grow awareness of warning signs and risk of suicide to promote the ability of individuals and communities to respond to individuals in need
3. Increase the availability of information and support for those at risk, their families, carers, and significant others
4. Increase communication between the Northern Territory and Australian Government departments and the non-Government organisations they fund to provide suicide prevention activities and to expand knowledge of best practice in this area
5. Strengthen communities and individuals through targeted activities that build wellbeing and resilience
6. Identify and promote high standards in the provision of suicide prevention and response
7. Expand the research and evidence-base for prevention of self-harm and suicide in order to develop effective interventions.
