Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Committee (TSPC)

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) leads the development and implementation of suicide prevention policy in Tasmania.

DHHS is supported in this work by the Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Committee (TSPC) and the Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Community Network (TSPCN).

The TSPC is an intergovernmental committee led by DHHS with membership from all levels of government and the community sector.

The Tasmanian suicide prevention sector (including service providers, academics and people with lived experience) is represented on the TSPC through the Chair of the TSPCN.

The TSPC meets quarterly.

Membership of the TSPC is currently under review to ensure that it is in line with the direction of the new Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Strategy 2016-2020 to ensure cross-government and cross-sector leadership at the government and community level.
