The National Suicide Prevention Trial
The Australian Government is supporting the implementation and evaluation of twelve suicide prevention trial sites across Australia as part of the National Suicide Prevention Trial. The trials are led by Primary Health Networks (PHNs) and aim to improve the current evidence of effective suicide prevention strategy at a local level for at-risk population groups.
Brisbane North PHN identified 3 populations to target their work towards; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, LGBTIQ+ people and men aged 24-54 years of age. IndigiLez Women’s Leadership and Support Group and the gar’ban’djee’lum Network were selected by the Brisbane North PHN Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Implementation Team to lead a suicide prevention campaign for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities.
