|The key purpose of this report is to assess the magnitude of suicide deaths among Territorians. Information on the demographic, socio-economic and behavioural factors associated with suicide has been used to identify population groups most at risk. The report also includes information on attempted suicide by analysing available data on clients admitted to public hospitals with a diagnosis of intentional self-harm.
|The public reporting of suicide may be a risk to vulnerable members of the community. This report collates statistics on suicide to inform clinical practice and for the development of policy and services for the prevention and management of suicide. Those people wishing to use the information for public reporting are reminded of the media code for the responsible reporting of suicide that is available at www.mindframe-media.info/
