Suicide Prevention Program

Rationale

The Suicide Prevention Program aims to provide treatment and support to individuals on the Central Coast who are at risk of suicide or self-harm at a critical point in their lives. It is designed to support people who are in any of the following scenarios:

  • Have been discharged into the care of a GP from hospital, including Emergency Departments (EDs).
  • Have been discharged into the care of a GP following an overnight admission in a medical ward after a suicide attempt.
  • Have presented to a GP after an incident of self-harm.
  • Have expressed strong suicidal ideation to their GP.

The program is currently funded by the Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) until June 2017 under the Access to Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) Program.

Talk to us about the range of services that  Central Coast Primary Care can provide NDIS participants inclusive of ‘Support Coordination’  which can help with putting all aspects of your NDIS plan in place.
