Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Community Network (TSPCN)

The TSPCN is a growing network that meets around the state every six weeks and is auspiced by RA Tas. Service providers, government representatives and community members meet to update each other on their initiatives in regard to promoting mental health, reducing stigma around mental illness and suicide, suicide prevention, early intervention and post-intervention.

Community Action Plans (CAPs)

A CAP is a practical plan that communities develop together to safely build supports to prevent and reduce suicide. The focus of a CAP is to increase the amount of support the community receives and gives each other by raising awareness and building community skills and resilience in suicide prevention. Any community can develop a CAP, whether they are groups from a town, sports club, regional area, workplace or a group with a shared interest in suicide prevention.

RA Tas supports the development and review of CAPs state-wide, working with ready communities and including population groups known to be at higher risk of suicide in line with the Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Strategy and also administers a small grants program to assist communities to implement activities identified in CAPs.

This is a free service, funded by the Tasmanian Government, Department of Health and Human Services.
