It is two years since the Prime Minister’s National Suicide Prevention Adviser, Christine Morgan, called on all Governments in Australia to make preventing male suicide a priority.
One of the key shifts Ms Morgan called for was for suicide prevention efforts to specifically target groups that are disproportionately affected by suicide, including men.
Ms Morgan's Final Report specifically called for all jurisdictions “commit to identifying priority actions for male suicide prevention to be incorporated into the National Suicide Prevention Strategy”.
As work on this new National Suicide Prevention Strategy reaches its conclusion, are Ms Morgan's recommendations being taken on board, or will this the needs of men as a priority population be overlooked?
