The Mental Health Commission of NSW needs Dubbo residents affected by the tragedy of suicide to take part in a survey.

Commission staff ran a consultation forum in the city earlier this month as part of its development of the Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention in NSW, as requested by the state government.

State Member for Dubbo Troy Grant is encouraging input on “what is or isn’t working in our area”. 

“Together we can build strong, connected and informed communities where no-one feels isolated and everyone knows how to find help or offer it if needed,” he said.

For crisis support call Lifeline on 13 11 14. For mental mental health services call the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.
