The Tasmanian Government is developing the next Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Strategy.

We want to hear from young people (aged 12-25), their parents/carers, and anyone who works with young Tasmanians about how we can prevent youth suicide and distress.

We have launched a survey to learn about how and where young people seek support and what they think we should do about youth suicide.

The survey is an opportunity for young people to tell us what they think is and isnโ€™t working when it comes to providing support for those who are struggling in their communities. Their ideas will help shape a five-year vision for preventing suicide in our State.

Alongside our survey, we are also rolling out an interactive state-wide campaign inviting young people to send us a postcard telling us what they need to live their best lives in Tasmania. Our postcards will be distributed to organisations supporting young people all around the state. If you or your workplace would like to share postcards, please email mhadd@health.tas.gov.au.

For more information and to have your say, visit Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Strategy Project | Department of Health, Tasmania.

Survey closes Monday 26 September 2022.
