In 2016 the Commission established the NSW Suicide Prevention Advisory Group, to advise the Mental Health Commissioner on issues relating to suicide prevention and to improve the planning, monitoring and co-ordination of suicide prevention activities in NSW.

Its establishment is one of eight key actions relating to suicide prevention identified in Living Well: A strategic plan for mental health in NSW 2014-2024.

The inaugural meeting focused on the upcoming trial of the Proposed Suicide Prevention Framework for NSW. The trial has been enabled by a $14.7m donation from the Paul Ramsay Foundation to the Black Dog Institute, which will lead the study.

The Group meets every six months.
