Care after a Suicide Attempt Project (CAASA)

The Care after a Suicide Attempt Project Report provides insight on the experiences of people who have attempted suicide as well as their families or support people and, in particular, focuses on their experiences of the types of services and support they received, and what makes a difference to their lives and recovery.

The NHMRC Centre for Excellence in Suicide Prevention (CRESP), Black Dog Institute has been contracted to conduct this research.

We pay our respects to their clans, and to the elders, past present and emerging, and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community.


The Commission is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services. The Commission welcomes all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Lived Experience

We acknowledge the individual and collective contributions of those with a lived and living experience of mental ill-health and suicide, and those who love, have loved and care for them. Each person’s journey is unique and a valued contribution to Australia’s commitment to mental health suicide prevention systems reform.
