Peel, Rockingham
and Kwinana
Suicide Prevention Trial

The Peel, Rockingham and Kwinana region is one of 12 sites across Australia selected by the Australian Government to participate in The National Suicide Prevention Trial.

The 12 locations chosen for the Trial have a higher than average suicide rate and this major trial aims to find the most effective approaches to suicide prevention for at-risk populations and share this knowledge across Australia.

Each year about 3,000 Australians take their lives and the suicide rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders is about twice that of non-Indigenous people.

The Peel, Rockingham and Kwinana Suicide Prevention Trial is focussing on young people between the ages of 16 to 24.

The communities involved are: Peel, Rockingham, Kwinana, Pinjarra and Waroona.

Preventing suicide is a complex problem and a one-size-fits-all strategy for dealing with the challenge may not be the best approach. This is exactly what this prevention trial is all about.
