Evaluation of Suicide Prevention Trial Sites with the University of Melbourne

January 2018 to June 2020 

We are currently working with the University of Melbourne to evaluate the Commonwealth Government’s National Suicide Prevention Trial, with a focus in leading the evaluation at sites focused on supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The key objective is to assess the extent the strategies are appropriate, effective and efficient in preventing suicide at a local level and with at-risk population groups, and the implications for future suicide prevention activities.

Key activities will involve:

  • visiting trial sites with an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focus and conducting interviews and workshops with local stakeholders regarding the trial, and
  • assessing the information, developing findings and recommendations to inform future policy directions.
