Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention and Awareness Network

SSPAN is a network of representatives from local services and community organisations. We work closely with the community to raise awareness of suicide with the aim to reduce the impact of suicide in the Shoalhaven.

SSPAN’s success in being able to support such a diverse range of suicide prevention activities is effective because of the network’s ability to develop strategies in line with the needs of the community and the aims of government and non-government services. These strategies are only possible through SSPAN’s close working relationship with community and service agencies that provide both financial and ‘in-kind’ support. Without such support many of these programs would not be feasible.
