The Gold Coast Mental Health and Specialist Service is committed to reducing Suicide of consumers in our care. This commitment has seen the development and endorsement of a new approach to suicide prevention across the service. Built on previous achievements the Gold Coast Suicide Prevention Strategy 2016 -2018 takes a step further and commits to reducing suicide of our consumers by 25% over the next two years. Zero Suicide is a new approach that is premised on the firm belief that suicide deaths for people under care can be preventable and that the bold goal of zero suicides among persons receiving care is an aspirational challenge that health systems should accept . The Zero Suicide approach aims to improve care and outcomes for individuals at risk of suicide in health care systems.
