The Evidence Checks and Research Reports were prepared for the National Suicide Prevention Adviser and the National Suicide Prevention Taskforce, commissioned through the National Suicide Prevention Research Fund, managed by Suicide Prevention Australia.
The National Suicide Prevention Research Fund was established by the Commonwealth Government to support world-class research into suicide prevention and facilitate the rapid translation of knowledge into more effective services for individuals, families and communities.
The National Suicide Prevention Taskforce has worked with an Expert Advisory Group, a Commonwealth Interdepartmental Committee and a State and Territory committee to identify some key priorities for research:
- research to understand the experiences of people with lived experience of a suicidal crisis and/or a suicide attempt
- series of evidence reviews to enhance planning for cross-portfolio initiatives.
