About this Event

Regional Decision Making for Suicide Prevention: A New Approach Symposium

Monday 17th February 2020: Registration from 8am.

The New Approach symposium will be informative for anyone with an interest in Suicide Prevention in the Hunter New England Central Coast region.

Understand what work has been done to co-design a Dynamic Simulation Model of our healthcare system for suicide prevention and how this will inform future strategic plans for our region.

You will also have the opportunity to gain further insights into some of the localised issues that are specific to different parts of the Hunter New England and Central Coast.

This Symposium will bring together a diverse range of speakers from the sector related to suicide prevention, including GP's, the Local Health Districts, SAX Institute, people with lived experience of suicide, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, CALD communities, youth, rural communities, LGBTQI, older persons and men.

It will offer an opportunity to reflect on the current approach to reducing suicide, discuss strengths and challenges and to explore next steps for future interventions that will have the most significant impact across the Hunter New England and Central Coast region.

A detailed program will be sent out to registered attendees closer to the date.

NOTE: Please ensure you register in the name you wish to be used on your Certificate of Attendance. Certificates will be emailed to the email address & name used for registration, so please ensure these are correct. If you do not receive a ticket confirmation & receipt, it means your email address was incorrect.
