This public consultation is now closed. Thank you for your interest, we are working through your feedback and the results will be published soon.

The National Suicide Prevention Office (NSPO) is calling for public consultation on its development of a National Suicide Prevention Strategy.

Background

The National Suicide Prevention Office (NSPO) was established in January 2022.

It aims to build upon the Suicide Prevention Adviser's Final Advice, capitalising on the remit it provides for reform to ensure that all levels and parts of government commit to, and invest in, actions required to achieve a more holistic approach to suicide prevention.

A key priority that emerged from the Final Advice is for the NSPO to develop a national suicide prevention strategy to form the basis for coordinated action across all governments, portfolios, and communities in order to achieve an Australia in which no person feels driven to take their own life.
