This poster discussed the “Here for Life Network” project which was developed to mobilize a skilled & coordinated community response to young people at risk of self-harm. The project is being extensively evaluated within an action research framework & if found to be effective will be implemented across Australia. A key issue that was discussed was sustainability; it is felt that if ongoing networks to respond to at-risk young people are not established, the project would not be successful.
