Northern Beaches Council - Northern Beaches Suicide Response

Northern Beaches Council - Northern Beaches Suicide Response
Next up in our series of LG Excellence award winning webinars is Northern Beaches Council - Northern Beaches Suicide Response. 

The Northern Beaches Suicide Response is a coordinated approach to address suicide across the Northern Beaches. Council plays a leadership role in suicide prevention through coordination of the Steering Group and Action Plan, developed in consultation with key stakeholders including police, health and people with lived experience of suicide, with a focus on coordination, communication, advocacy, intervention and postvention. The Response has improved safety in key locations, delivered targeted suicide intervention training to over 400 community members and 40 police and improved coordination of local service delivery, particularly through the Suicide Postvention Protocol Pilot. Most importantly, suicide rates between 2018 and 2019 decreased by almost a third, following implementation of The Response.
