#var:page_name# cover

Have you or a loved one made a suicide attempt, or been bereaved by suicide? Do you work in suicide prevention? We would value your input at this Dubbo consultation as we draft a 'Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW' for the NSW Government.

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 be holding a forum in Dubbo and three other locations across NSW, to consult with you on actions to improve existing efforts in suicide prevention and drive a coordinated response across the state.

In person consultation forum - Dubbo:
Date: Thursday 5 April 2018, 10am - 12.30pm
Venue: Quality Inn Dubbo International, Dubbo 2830 NSW

Special Invitation to an Afternoon Tea: You are also invited to a free afternoon tea with the Mental Health Commission of NSW on the following day. We understand you may have time constraints so feel free to come to one or both of the events.

If you have any questions or need further information on the event, please contact the organiser at victoria.hirst@mhc.nsw.gov.au or by phone at 02 9859 5214.
