Consumer Participation Suicide Prevention Outreach Team

Consumer Representation SPOT

SESLHD Mental Health Service is inviting Consumers to help design a Suicide Prevention Outreach Team as part of the Towards Zero Suicides initiative.


What is it?

The Suicide Prevention Outreach Team (SPOT) helps people who are in distress, suicidal or at risk of self-harm. SPOT is a mobile service and can come to you. A person in need of help can speak to a peer worker with a lived experience of suicide or to a mental health clinician.
