Equipping General Practice

General Practices can play a vital role in suicide prevention.

Many people experiencing suicidal thoughts or behaviours visit their GP in the weeks or days before suicide.

Equip your practice with the tools it needs to identify people in need of support for mental illness and provide evidence-based referral pathways.

Opportunities to set up the universal screening tool, StepCare, are available now.

To know more about StepCare, contact Sam Carter, Sam Carter is the Commissioning Coordinator for Suicide Prevention, Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network. You can email Sam at scarter@hneccphn.com.au or phone on 1300 859 028.
