This study examines the mental health outcomes for people who are treated in a novel, post-suicide attempt outreach program. The program is one of several pilot projects in Victoria that seek to reduce the suicide toll in Victoria. People who enter the program are offered combined clinical and psychosocial intervention for three months. Measures of outcome such as wellbeing, suicidal thinking, community and emergency service use are being collected for people who have entered and completed the program. The successful applicant will have an opportunity to assist with data collection and analyses. This project will look specifically at the differences in outcomes for people across the phases of HOPE implementation. This project involves working in a hospital setting, using patient databases and statistical analyses.
