We are delighted to launch the Collaborative's first Report Card this week, which provides an overview of all that we’ve been working on and an indication of what we’re looking to achieve in the coming years.
The Report Card contains the story of how the Collaborative came about, how we work, and why the voices of people with lived experience are so important in suicide prevention. The Report Card also features information on:
- the LifeSpan trial with Black Dog Institute
- local community engagement and training
- the Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) campaign and Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM) program in schools
- improving the supports available to people after a crisis
- evidence-based treatments for suicidality.
We would like to thank our members for your valuable contributions, which are essential to the success of the Collaborative.
