Welcome to the Zero Suicide Resource Site.
Our firm belief is that deaths by suicide for individuals in care within health and behavioural health systems are always preventable.
Internationally it is increasingly being extended to justice, vulnerable children and corrections systems as research indicates that citizens within these systems are at a greater chance of death by suicide. People in distress just seem to fall within the cracks.
Zero Suicide is an international call and represents both a bold goal and an aspirational challenge that communities are increasingly expecting us to respond.
This website aims to bring together resources, support those courageous enough to implement a zero suicide methodology, promote best practice and generally inspire a Zero Suicide approach across Aotearoa, New Zealand.
We endorse the work of the Mental Health Foundation and many excellent organisations delivering mental health services across New Zealand in difficult times.
