The solution to suicide does not lie just with individuals but with whole communities. The responsibility for suicide prevention extends beyond mental health services. All tiers of government, Primary Health Networks, community managed organisations, people with lived experience of attempted suicide and suicide bereavement and interested and motivated community members all work towards improving community wellbeing and preventing suicide.
The Mental Health Commission of NSW is developing The Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW which will build on current and past work at the State and Commonwealth level.
As part of our planning, the Commission will hold an open community forum in Wagga Wagga, to agree on actions to improve existing efforts in suicide prevention and drive a coordinated response.
Date: 18 April 2018
Venue: Mantra Pavilion Hotel, 22-30 Kincaid St, Wagga Wagga.
In the morning, we would like to focus on the Aboriginal community and in the afternoon, we will focus on the broader community. Lunch will be provided for all.
- 10am - 12.30pm Aboriginal Consultation Forum - RSVP
- 1pm - 2pm Networking lunch both for morning and afternoon forum's participants
- 2pm - 4.30pm General Community Forum - RSVP
A ticket is not required to attend on the day, however, we would really appreciate if you could let us know if you can attend for catering purposes.
Online consultation survey:
Not everyone can attend a workshop, but your input is important. For that reason, we would like you to spend a few minutes completing our online survey.
This survey is for everyone in the community and we hope that you will be able to send it to as many of your contacts as possible.
Take the survey on Survey Monkey
