Solutions that work: What the evidence and our people tell us. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project Report

The Report summarises the evidence-base for what works in Indigenous community-led suicide prevention, including responses to the social determinants of health that are ‘upstream’ risk factors for suicide. It also presents tools to support Indigenous suicide prevention activities developed by the project. Through these, we hope you agree that ATSISPEP has placed Indigenous suicide prevention activities on a firm foundation. The ATSISPEP Team believes that this Report should be considered by all Government agencies, particularly in relation to social and cultural determinants of health. The tools related to planning, assessment and evaluation should be considered by all parties involved in suicide prevention, including the Primary Health Networks, particularly in relation to the implementation of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Strategy.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project (ATSISPEP)

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project (ATSISPEP) was established to evaluate the effectiveness of existing suicide prevention services and programs. During the course of the project, an extensive list of suicide prevention resources was collated for the use of both researchers in the field and the wider community
