Special edition Life in Mind eNews, November 2023

Posted 30th November 2023 in eNews

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

Living in rural and remote areas presents unique challenges and people may experience poorer health outcomes due to limited access, availability and resourcing of healthcare and community services.

Recent data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s Suicide and Self-Harm Monitoring System show that suicide rates increase as population density decreases. Given that almost one third of Australia’s population live outside of capital cities, and the associated increased rates of suicide, it is important to understand accessing the available evidence to support suicide prevention in these areas.

This edition of the Life in Mind eNews includes emerging research, news and initiatives that focus on supporting people living in rural and remote areas.
