Work and suicide prevention: Position statement.
Suicide Prevention Australia
Most deaths by suicide are among people of working age. Suicide is the leading cause of death for males aged 25Ð44 years and females aged 25Ð34 years. SPA has reviewed the existing evidence and summarised key issues in this document. We believe urgent action is required to address a range of systemic issues including managing unemployment, workers compensation and coronial processes. In addition, we call on organisations of all sizes to implement workplace policies and programs that promote a mentally healthy workforce and prevent suicide behaviours.
