Eastern Melbourne PHN, together with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, has funded Neami National to deliver a new suicide prevention and support after bereavement service called LifeConnect – Suicide Prevention and Support After Suicide.
The new service incorporates learnings from the successful place-based suicide prevention trials in Maroondah and Whittlesea, which involved extensive community consultation with councils, service providers, community members, and people with lived experience.
The evidence-based model for the new service has been guided by The Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan and the Victorian Suicide Prevention Framework 2016-2025.
