Life in Mind eNews special edition, February 2024

Posted 29th February 2024 in eNews

Welcome to this special edition of Life in Mind eNews, focused on suicide prevention activities and the latest published research relating to young people.

Data provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics for 2022 show that suicide was the leading cause of death for young people aged 15-24 years. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, the rate is over three times higher than non-Indigenous Australians in the same age group.

Responding to suicide in young people requires a different and age-specific approach compared to other age groups. Having a greater understanding of the evidence and ways to implement preventative approaches, supports to reduce the suicide rates for young people.

This Life in Mind eNews edition highlights some of the current Australian suicide prevention approaches and translated research studies relating to suicide in young people.
