The project aims to improve access to suicide and self-harm prevention activities in Australia through the promotion of the LIFE resources and website; and improve communication between suicide prevention stakeholders in Australia. This is achieved by providing access to a range of resources and research, including the latest information from National Suicide Prevention Strategy (NSPS) projects.
LIFE Communications aims to build networks in suicide prevention between key stakeholders such as academics, researchers, health professionals, service providers, community leaders and policy makers. This is achieved through a range of strategic and targeted communication activities. The LIFE website is the primary medium of communication. It provides the latest research on suicide, news on developments in the NSPS, as well as opportunities to discuss issues and share knowledge, resources and information. The website also provides a dynamic and accessible forum of interaction, independent of stakeholders’ geography, resources and time constraints.
The project team promotes stakeholder use of the LIFE Resources, making it easy for them to access relevant information and apply it to their suicide prevention work.
