We designed the State of the Nation in Suicide Prevention survey to gather in-depth intelligence from our membership and the broader suicide prevention sector. As the Australian national peak body, it informs our role as a clear, collective voice for the sector and supports us to work towards our ambition of a world without suicide. The survey opened for three weeks in late July and closed in early August. A majority of responses were members of Suicide Prevention Australia, with around two thirds of those responses from member organisations and the remaining from individual members.
The State of the Nation in Suicide Prevention is structured in three parts:
1. State of the sector – looking at the type of organisations in the sector, their priorities and challenges and the current operating environment
2. State of the community – looking at the current and emerging risks for suicide prevention across the community as well as those groups most at risk
3. State of the platform – looking at the key priorities of our National Policy Platform including whole-of-government reform, accurate, reliable data and workforce strategy.
