Description

This booklet provides principles that have been developed to support agencies funded by the Department of Communities to meet the Standard for Community Services in Queensland. These standards require agencies to develop, implement and review policies and procedures for preventing harm (including suicide and self-harm), and to respond to potential or actual harm that may occur to clients. The booklet contains sections on appropriate responses to this issue in Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities.

The Queensland Department of Communities developed this booklet as part of three online resources to meet part of its commitment to the Queensland Government Suicide Prevention Strategy.
