Suicide Prevention on
the Central Coast
In 1996 the Central Coast Suicide Safety Network (SSN) was established in partnership with the Central Coast Coroner, NSW Police, Lifeline Central Coast, Central Coast Local Health District (CCLHD) Health Promotion and CCLHD Mental Health Service. This partnership has gone from strength to strength harnessing support and joint working projects across the Central Coast community regarding suicide prevention initiatives.
Suicide Prevention Central Coast was formed in 2016 to develop a community response to suicide deaths on the Central Coast. The first successful initiative was to tender for funding from the Black Dog Institute.to implement the LifeSpan project.
The purpose of Suicide Prevention Central Coast is to provide strategic direction and informed decision making on the ongoing collaborative development, implementation and local evaluation of the LifeSpan suicide prevention model across the Central Coast.
What is LifeSpan?
LifeSpan is an innovative, world-class approach to suicide prevention and is the new name for the Systems Approach to Suicide Prevention initially developed on behalf of the NSW Mental Health Commission by the National health and Medical research Council (NHMRC) Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention (CRESP) and Black Dog Institute.
