Description

Similar to the general suicide prevention plan, this plan has 5 priorities by which it aims aims to reduce the rate of the suicide of young people;
- Start early by focusing on the resilience, mental health and wellbeing of children,
parents and families.
- Empower young people, families and wider community networks to talk about
suicide and respond to young people at risk of suicide.
- Build on the capacity of schools and other educational settings to support young
people who may be at risk of suicide or impacted by suicide.
- Develop the capacity of the service system to support young people
experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
- Respond in a timely and effective way to the suicide of a young person to minimise the impact on other young people in Tasmania.
