This presentation outlined the establishment of the ‘Make a Noise – Youth Suicide Prevention Project’ of the Greater Murray Area Health Service. The project used a community development approach & employed a number of strategies to reduce suicide risk. The presentation highlighted the importance of involving young people in the planning of youth suicide prevention projects, intersectoral collaboration in community development, the need for clear strategies to raise awareness, & the need to focus on those factors which can increase risk in young people rather than suicide itself.
