If suicide has affected you or you just want to have your say. A sobering topic but close to home for too many.
The State Government and SA Health are encouraging the South Australian community to take the time to provide feedback on the new draft South Australian Suicide Prevention Plan 2017-2021
The new South Australian Suicide Prevevention Plan will identify priority areas that align to current best practice recommendations from national and international sources to prevent suicide in South Australia and builds upon the South Australian Suicide Prevention Strategy 2012-2016.
Many South Australians have been affected in some way by the death of a person who has taken their own life. Suicide is the leading cause of death for South Australians aged 15 to 44 and the numbers over recent years are on the rise.
The issue of suicide is complex; rarely resulting from a single cause. Understanding the problems helps us understand the solution.
Help shape the new South Australian Suicide Prevention Plan 2017-2021 by providing feedback and telling SA Health what you believe is important to include in the new plan.
Visit www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/suicideprevention to view the plan and provide feedback by Friday 19 May 2017.
