Suicide Prevention

Early identification of disease risk factors

Suicide remains the leading cause of death among people aged 15-44 years. In addition to the premature loss of life, suicide can have a profound and lasting negative impact on families, workplaces and our regional, rural and remote communities.

We are committed to providing integrated systems-based regional approaches in partnership, that support people who have attempted suicide or those at risk of suicide.  Focusing also on programs that build the capacity and confidence of our communities and workforce to recognise and respond to suicide across Country SA.

Country SA  PHN is also one of the 12 national trial sites around the country taking part in the National Suicide Prevention Trial, with work in the region targeted towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, young people aged 15 -24 and men aged 24–54.
