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.

Please contact Sam Carter Suicide Prevention and Early Intervention Officer Hunter New England & Central Coast Primary Health Network to find out more about StepCare and to register your interest.
