Using Online Tools in Suicide Prevention | Podcast

17 April 2018 - Dr Jan Orman

Overview

The prevalence of suicide in the Australian population is not diminishing, in fact in the last few years we have seen a disturbing increase in prevalence in some age groups and communities.

Research results suggest that thinking of suicide prevention as a wholly medical problem is not effective. Optimising mental health care and service delivery is only part of the solution. Other important factors known to reduce suicide in communities include improving mental health knowledge and literacy across the community and the early learning of skills and strategies to improve resilience.
