New Zealand Suicide Prevention Strategy 2006-2016

The New Zealand Suicide Prevention Strategy 2006–2016 provides a framework to help us understand how all the various activities across the range of sectors fit together to prevent suicide, and will guide our efforts nationally over the next 10 years. This framework is outlined below and shown in Figure 1. The strategy builds on and replaces The New Zealand Youth Suicide Prevention Strategy: ‘In Our Hands’ and ‘Kia Piki te Ora o te Taitamariki’, and draws from an expanded knowledge base of suicide and suicide prevention.
