This report summarises the work of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project in expanding the evidence base for what works in Indigenous led suicide prevention, based on:

  • 12 Indigenous community round-table consultations held between March 2015 and April 2016
  • a literature review
  • an analysis of 69 previous Indigenous community consultations in Australia between 2009 and 2015
  • an analysis of other credible and relevant sources
  • key themes and recommendations from the inaugural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference in 2016.

The report also includes a meta-evaluation of evaluated community-led Indigenous suicide prevention programs.
