This report would not have been possible without the cooperation and support of many. In particular, the authors (Australian Healthcare Associates) would like to thank all those directly involved in this evaluation who gave their time and made valuable contributions. This includes the staff and management of the 49 organisations funded to provide suicide prevention services; state/territory government and DoHA staff responsible for administering the projects; and the many external experts, peak body representatives and other stakeholders who were consulted during the course of the evaluation.

The Evaluation of Suicide Prevention Activities and this resultant final report were funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA).
