Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention Workshop

2:00 – 4:00pm, Thursday 30 March, 2017.

Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA) will hold a briefing on Lived Experience followed by a 90-minute consultation workshop on the proposed Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention; the workshop will begin with an introduction and background followed by a break out group workshop to discuss and gather feedback on the proposed Framework. Feedback will be recorded and used for the SPA Board and the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention in developing a recommended Framework to Government by mid-year.

The Federal Government has committed to the development of a national suicide prevention plan. This consultation workshop is an opportunity for the NGO community voice to contribute to the development of the Government plan.
