Life promotions program



The Life promotions program is an initiative of the Mental Health Association of Central Australia. It is a suicide prevention program that was established in 1998 in response to the high rate of suicide in the region. The program works collaboratively with relevant agencies, government departments, and the community to develop and implement initiatives that will reduce suicide and suicidal behaviour in central Australia. The Life promotions program aligns its work with the national framework for suicide prevention strategy and is comprised of the following elements:

Several projects also form part of the Life promotions program, for example, the Yarning about suicide in Central Australia project is currently being undertaken which involves in-depth interviews with people affected by suicide as well as professionals. The information obtained will be used as an educational resource to raise awareness about suicide in a local context.
