• Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative

The Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative (the Collaborative) is the coming together of more than 70 individuals, including representatives from 30 local organisations, community members and people with lived experience of suicide. 


Working toward the common goal of reducing suicides in the Illawarra Shoalhaven, members contribute time, expertise, and resources to develop, implement, and  evaluate whole-of-community suicide prevention and postvention strategies. 


Trusting relationships and mutual respect are are the heart of everything we do.
