A state strategy for suicide prevention was developed for Victoria in 1997. It was not felt a major new strategy needed to be developed so this forward action plan that identifies & improves on existing suicide prevention activities was put forth. This plan provides a coordinated state approach, identifies suicide prevention activities embedded in universal & specialist services, proposes a model program of targeted interventions & initiatives; & focuses on a small number of specific priority areas.
