Preventing suicide—A collaborative approach
Presenting with Deb Rae
Saturday 1 September | View program for more details
Suicide is a whole of community issue. Lives can be saved when the whole community works collaboratively, with shared commitment and responsibility. This is the strategic approach of the Suicide Prevention Community Action Planning Group in Whitsunday, Isaac and Mackay (SPCAP). The SPCAP Group is creating a strong web of connections, trust and capacity across a range of partners to directly address the very complex task of preventing suicide. This ensures that the work will be embedded within the local community, which supports its sustainability and enables effective implementation of a suite of evidence-based strategies that would have otherwise possibly failed.
