Communities Matter

The Mental Health Commission has developed some resources to assist communities work together to develop suicide prevention activities and has asked Council to help promote this very important initiative. Well informed, community led action backed by evidence has been shown to be the cornerstone of effective suicide prevention activities. Nationally suicide is the leading cause of death for both men and women aged 15-44years.

The Communities Matter Toolkit is freely available as an on line resource and provides:

  • A guide on how to set up and run a local suicide prevention action group
  • Fact sheets, sample documents and templates
  • Stories from existing action groups
  • Opportunities to connect with like-minded community leaders
  • Information on how to help as an individual

Resources are available to download at the CommunitiesMatter website.
