CRRMH Position Paper: Rural Suicide and its prevention: a CRRMH position paper (2017)
Podcasts: Lets talk series: In this podcast series you’ll hear from people who have a lived experience of mental health issues. You’ll also hear from people who have survived trauma or have lost a loved one to suicide.
S1: E1 Talking to your GP: In this episode we talk about why your General Practitioner (GP) can be the most important person if you’re struggling with your mental health. While the stigma around mental health is improving, wanting to be resilient in times of distress can stop us all reaching out for help.
S1: E5 Rural Suicide Prevention: If you are living in rural and regional Australia, you are at a higher risk of suicide than your friends and family living in the city. You have less access to services and mental health care and the stigma around suicide is still significant. So how can we save more lives? In this episode we take a look at this issue and hear from some of the speakers at a forum the Centre facilitated earlier in the year at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

One of the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health’s three priorities is understanding and responding to suicide in rural and remote communities across NSW. We conduct research activities to help understand the key factors leading to suicide. We also deliver a wide range of workshops and training courses to educate communities and health professionals in suicide prevention. We are part of the NSW Mental Health Commission Suicide Prevention Advisory Group which works to improve planning, monitoring and co-ordination of suicide prevention efforts. We are also a member of Suicide Prevention Australia.
