Suicide is a major cause of death among young people in Australia. This publication was compiled by the Australian Institute of Family Studies for the National Youth Suicide Prevention Strategy, which is aimed at establishing and encouraging best practice in the identification and treatment of suicidal behaviour in young Australians and ensuring that effective suicide prevention interventions are incorporated into the regular programs of health, welfare, education and other agencies. The aim of the stocktake is to create a database of the policy, program and other activities being carried out across Australia in response to the issue of youth suicide which could be made available to all those people concerned with youth suicide and its prevention.
