The Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative 

Suicide rates in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region remain higher than NSW averages, with 40-60 suicides reported each year.     

The Collaborative was recently successful in its application to be a trial site for Lifespan, Australia’s largest integrated suicide prevention program being rolled out in four locations across NSW, expected to reduce suicide deaths by 20% and suicide attempts by 30%.
