National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide prevention strategy

Abstract

This national strategy seeks to address the high rate of suicide within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, which is reported to be twice that of non-Indigenous Australians. Using a holistic early intervention approach, this strategy will focus on working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to build strong communities in an effort to reduce the cause, prevalence, and impact of suicide on individuals, families, and communities. Guiding the implementation of this strategy are six goals, which will be achieved through six action areas. To achieve its overriding objective, this strategy will see increased investment for suicide prevention activities that are culturally specific to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.
