National Suicide Prevention Leadership and Support Program

Share This Post

The Government is providing a further boost for a range of school-based, online and community programmes aiming to reduce the risk of suicide and suicidal behaviours among young people across the country.

This $114 million National Suicide Prevention Leadership and Support Programme (NSPLSP) grant opportunity is a key pillar of our Government’s historic National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan first announced in the 2021-2022 Budget.

As you may recall, my maiden speech was devoted to the memory of my father, in the hope that speaking publicly about the experience would help others. That’s why I am proud that the NSPLSP is supporting key suicide prevention activities across several significant themes, including national leadership, research and training, education and awareness, youth suicide prevention, Indigenous suicide prevention, men’s suicide prevention and veteran’s suicide prevention.

The youth suicide prevention component announced yesterday provided $13 million+ over three years for key organisations to deliver national services to support the mental health and well-being of younger Australians.
