Sydney Morning Herald: National suicide monitoring website provides ‘seismic shift’ in tackling tragedies

Sydney Morning Herald: National suicide monitoring website provides ‘seismic shift’ in tackling tragedies. “A national database compiling timely information from paramedics, hospitals, coroners, police and the community on suicides will be launched on Tuesday to demystify the subject in a bid to prevent more deaths. In what the National Mental Health Commission describes as a seismic shift in addressing the issue, Australia’s National Suicide and Self-Harm Monitoring System will be a real-time, centralised and publicly searchable database to help detect trends and guide interventions.”
