Whole system approach to Zero suicide

The `whole system approach` is a framework for developing suicide prevention capacity within an agency or organisation. The approach`s elements are:- 1.leadership; 2.mental health &wellbeing  promotion; 3.suicide awareness & prevention; 4.training; 5.suicide intervention & ongoing community support; 6.postvention and 7.evaluation. If an agency fully commits to all 7 elements in the approach, we believe that they have effectively created a suicide down to zero environment.
