2018-2019 Annual Report / Year in Review
On reflection the past 12 months has seen remarkable progress relating to government funding for suicide prevention, political engagement and leadership. So if we were to use two words to capture 2018-19, they’d be ‘change’ and ‘momentum’. Not only has Suicide Prevention Australia experienced internal reshaping, renewed focus and strategic growth but the political landscape has also shifted. There is no doubt that suicide prevention has gained political momentum and we are determined to harness this appetite for action.
Turning Points: Imagine a world without suicide
This white paper is a pivotal piece of work that Suicide Prevention Australia developed with KPMG. Turning Points: Imagine a world without suicide examines the emerging trends in housing, finance, employment and relationships and their likely effect on Australians in the coming decade.
National Policy Platform
Launched in April 2019, SPA’s National Policy Platform advocates for immediate changes to government policy architecture.
Better cross-portfolio coordination is essential to address the social, economic, health, occupational, cultural and environmental factors involved in suicide prevention.
We are also calling for improvement in the collection and management of reliable data and a comprehensive suicide prevention workforce strategy.
The National Policy Platform outlines solutions to effectively and sustainably support suicide prevention in Australia.
