Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in Australia, with approximately seven Australians dying from suicide each day. More people aged 15 to 44 die from suicide than any other cause. PsychMed is committed to providing individual evidence-based therapy for people experiencing suicidal thoughts and feelings. We are committed to reduce stigma and shame associated with suicidal thoughts, feelings actions with the aim of creating a community where at-risk individuals can speak about their challenges more openly.
The Commonwealth Government (through the APHN) has designated PsychMed as a key SA provider of suicide prevention services and supported the establishment of an Australian-first Suicide Intervention Program for Suicide-Attempters and those experiencing suicidal crisis.
