Suicide Prevention Program (SPP)

The Suicide Prevention Program provides psychological support for people at low to moderate risk of suicide or self-harm.

Your GP, psychiatrist or a member of the Acute Care Team at the hospital will need to provide a referral to access this service (your GP may refer to this service as BOMH- ATAPS, the government name for the program).

One referral entitles you to unlimited sessions with an Allied Health Professional for 1 to 2 months focussed on addressing the current crisis and reducing the level of risk.  All sessions are funded and are at no cost to you. The program is currently funded by the Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) until June 2017.

 Our Allied Health Professionals are specifically trained to help you if you are at risk of suicide or experiencing suicidal ideation.

To make a referral, contact CCPC on 4365 2294.
