This Strategy was developed to reduce the prevalence & impact of suicide in Tasmania. A collaborative approach between government & community is articulated. 5 aims are set out: building the social & informed capacity of communities to prevent suicide in ways that best suit their community concerns; better organising available suicide prevention services; building the capacity of Tasmania’s primary health care resources to accurately identify & support persons thinking about or at imminent risk of suicide; strengthening the resources of acute inpatient & community mental health services; & limiting access to methods of suicide & exposure to suicide methods via the media or peers.
