Youth Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention

Black Dog Institute has received support from the Future Generation Global Investment Company (FGG) to establish a Youth Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention. This Centre is developing solutions that reduce suicide risk, with a focus on utilising new technologies popular with young people, including smartphones and social media. Work to date includes a trial in two hospitals of a mobile-based messaging system which provides follow-up care for young people upon hospital discharge after a suicide attempt – a key risk period for a repeat attempt.
