About our Network
What is a Suicide Prevention Network (SPN)?
A SPN is formed through the collaborative efforts of the SA Health Office of Chief Psychiatry, Local Government and people in the community who want to prevent suicides in their community.
These Networks are linked to Local Government identifying with their boundaries, communities and their Public Health Plan. This is because the Local Government is the hub of every community providing connections that link all elements of the community together.
The Networks work to develop a local coordinated and sustainable approach to suicide prevention and postvention in the area.
To create opportunities for our communities to connect, increase resilience and enable people to reach out to one another to ensure well-being.
The Network values the life of every person in our community.
We offer respect and empathy to all.
We are inclusive of all people, of all ages, races & genders in our community.
