Suicide prevention is a key priority of SEMPHN.
There are a range of government funded community-based suicide prevention activities that are delivered within the SEMPHN region.
These services range from after-care and support to families and friends following a suicide, to training and development for health professionals and community activities.
People at low risk of suicide (as determined by a suicide risk assessment) can be referred to the Suicide Prevention Service of ATAPS.
SEMPHN is exploring community-based suicide prevention initiatives focused on people at risk of attempting and/or those who have attempted suicide, to complement existing services in the region. Specifically, this includes the provision of prevention and after care support. SEMPHN is co-designing with the sector to implement an appropriate model of care.
Commissioning opportunities for suicide prevention will be released in early 2017.
You can register your interest for funding opportunities. You will receive updates about the tender process, including guidelines and timelines, when available.
