Youth Suicide Prevention and Education Program

The Youth Suicide Prevention and Education Program works in partnership with specialist mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander wellbeing services and community organisations to build strength and resilience in individuals and families at risk in the Top End.

What does this program provide?

We provide a comprehensive suicide prevention and education program aimed at increasing community safety and wellbeing by addressing the high rates of suicide amongst adolescents in the Top End community.

We use an evidenced based, culturally responsive approach, incorporated with cultural health and the local knowledge of our Top End communities to develop community specific suicide prevention strategies that strengthen our communities so that they may be better equipped to understand suicide amongst adolescents.

The program aims to:

  • increase awareness about the warning signs and risks of suicide so that individuals and community members may better understand how to respond to individuals in need
  • increase awareness about the information and support services available to those at risk, their families and carers
  • strengthen communities and individuals using targeted activities that build wellbeing and resilience.

Where is this service provided?

The service is provided within the Darwin, Palmerston, Batchelor, Maningrida, Daly River and Gunbalanya regions.

Who is this service available to?

The service is available to service providers, schools and organisations that provide a service or manage youth aged 12 to 25 years.
