Victorian Primary Care Partnership

Indigenous Australians experience an overall rate of suicide that is double that of non-Indigenous Australians, with young Aboriginal people being at the highest risk. Murray PHN identified suicide prevention as a key priority area and are supporting targeted suicide  prevention activities  within  Aboriginal and  Torres  Strait Islander  communities. Murray PHN funded Central Hume Primary Care Partnership (auspiced by Benalla Health) to develop and implement community-based interventions  and  strengthening activities  which  support suicide prevention through community consultation.
