It is time for renewed action against suicide, and for a more focused and coordinated effort by individuals, communities, organisations, the private sector and government. This Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW 2018–2023 provides the direction for this effort. The NSW Government is already making record investments in mental health and suicide prevention. The Framework builds on this investment, proposing new approaches to help address gaps in the system and achieve a more comprehensive response.

The Framework has been developed by the NSW Mental Health Commission and the NSW Ministry of Health in collaboration with people with lived experience of a suicide attempt or suicide bereavement, government agencies, mental health organisations and experts in suicide prevention. I am grateful to all those who have contributed to the Framework’s development – members of the NSW Suicide Prevention Advisory Group, nongovernment organisations, communities and individuals.
