Effective suicide prevention requires coordinated effort across sectors, organisations and communities. The South Eastern NSW Regional Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan highlights COORDINARE's collaborative approach to suicide prevention across South Eastern NSW. Strategies and initiatives range from whole-of-community health promotion initiatives, through to the design and commissioning of services that improve access to supports for individuals at risk of suicide.
Working in partnership with a broad range of organisations and community groups, COORDINARE has identified opportunities for system improvements, and the need to design and implement new suicide prevention initiatives tailored to local needs.
Some of the strategies COORDINARE is actively working on include:
We have recently introduced a new Suicide Prevention team who will work closely with key stakeholders to implement a region-wide approach to suicide prevention. COORDINARE is also a member of the Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative (the Collaborative), a group comprised of more than 40 local organisations and individuals working together to reduce suicides in the Illawarra Shoalhaven.
