National Coronial Information Suicide Data Analysis 2003-2018

Thirrili Ltd (Thirrili) engaged Healthcare Management Advisors (HMA) to undertake an analysis of National Coronial Information Service (NCIS) data to support the continuing development of Thirrili’s service model for the National Indigenous Critical Response Service (NICRS), which supports individuals’ families and communities affected by suicide. This analysis aimed to:

  • inform the rollout of NICRS services throughout Australia
  • provide information to inform appropriate staffing needs, based on insights into the distribution of revealed demand at a regional level, and
  • serve as a source of information for Thirrili staff to refer to when preparing presentations or reports.

This paper presents the findings on indigenous suicide rates for each jurisdiction in Australia.
