The Victorian Suicide Prevention Framework sets priorities for suicide prevention as part of Victoria’s 10-year mental health plan. It sets out how the Victorian Government will implement a coordinated approach that ensures all involved in suicide prevention collaborate and focus their efforts on the interventions that are proven to have the greatest impact.

The framework was developed drawing on the extensive community consultation undertaken for Victoria’s 10-year mental health plan, the work of the National Mental Health Commission on suicide prevention, and additional consultations with Victorian Government agencies, experts, community leaders and the Expert Taskforce on Mental Health.
