New Zealand Suicide Prevention Strategy 2006-2016

Published online: 
02 June 2006

Summary

The New Zealand Suicide Prevention Strategy 2006-2016 was launched in June 2006 to provide an all-ages approach to suicide prevention. It builds on the gains made by the New Zealand Youth Suicide Prevention Strategy which was released in 1998.

The New Zealand Suicide Prevention Strategy 2006-2016 provides a framework for suicide prevention efforts over the next 10 years. Its overarching aim is to reduce the rate of suicidal behaviour and its effects on the lives of New Zealanders, while taking into account that suicide affects certain groups more than others. To achieve this aim, five year Action Plans will be developed to provide the detail about what specific initiatives will be implemented, by when and by whom.

The strategy will be useful for anyone who can contribute to suicide prevention. This includes health providers, community and iwi groups, researchers, schools, prisons, the media and the breadth of central and local government.
