Incidence of suicidal behaviours in Indigenous communities in Queensland

 

Overview

This research project aims to develop a deeper understanding on the perceptions of non-fatal and fatal suicidal behaviours in the community of Mackay. The project will also look into the suicide prevention activities currently in place.

The full title of the project is: The incidence of suicidal behaviours in Indigenous communities in Queensland - evaluation and development of baseline data.

This project aims to enhance understanding of self-harm and suicidal behaviours. Additionally, the project aims to increase community capacity in implementing effective prevention activities, by involving the community in the planning and implementation of the data collection and analysis process.

The Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention have received funding from the Australian Rotary Health Research Fund for this research project.
