Suicide in Australia background information: key facts and analysis

Policy Online carries a link (24.5.16) to a fact sheet released through the University of Sydney, which draws political parties’ attention to details of the prevalence of suicide and mental health problems across the nation.

‘In Canberra, leaders in suicide and mental health, led by consultancy ConNetica and the Brain and Mind Centre University of Sydney, released details on suicide across 28 Federal electorates. Supporting the release were four parents with lived experience of suicide and the National Congress for Australia’s First People.

‘The information has been released with a call for all major parties and candidates in the 2 July election to spell out what they will do in the next Parliament to address the rising toll of suicide and self-harm across Australia.’
