The FNQ Suicide Prevention Taskforce’s goals are to implement, support and promote strategies, which aim to reduce occurrences of suicide and self harm.
The Foundation manages this Taskforce, which is a community-based voluntary group, representing a wide cross-section of the community. It comprises approximately 80 members from health and welfare agencies such as counselling and youth agencies, general practitioners, education and mental health providers, government agencies, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services, local government and universities. For more information on the Taskforce visit www.suicidepreventionfnq.org.au.
The Cairns & Hinterland Suicide Prevention Community Action Plan is currently being drafted by the FNQ Suicide Prevention Taskforce, Dr Edward Koch Foundation on behalf of Northern Queensland Primary Health Network, and funded by the Australian Government of Health.
