Mindframe works with with Primary Health Networks (PHNs), local suicide prevention networks/collaboratives, mental health organisations and community groups to build their capacity to safely respond and communicate about suicide and suicide prevention activities.
When a regional suicide incident occurs or following an incident, Mindframe provides support and resources the Primary Health Network (PHN), local suicide prevention networks or collaboratives, community groups and local media outlets.
Mindframe's support provides evidence-based knowledge and context surrounding safe and responsible ways to respond to an incident while minimising harm on vulnerable people or those bereaved by suicide.
Building the capacity of rural and regional communities strengthens their understanding of suicide, enabling them to communicate and respond safely and responsibly.
How to get involved in Mindframe training
Free Mindframe training
Community representatives within Primary Health Networks (PHNs) or local trial site locations may be ill-prepared when responding or managing media following a critical incident.
This can lead to inconsistent messaging and potentially harmful coverage being disseminated to audiences that are most at risk of suicide.
To ensure a co-ordinated and appropriate response is delivered in the event of an incident, PHNs will be supported to implement national guidelines on managing suicide clusters.

Mindframe Plus training
Mindframe Plus is an intensive version of Mindframe training in which trial sites can fund responses that go far beyond the core support for Primary Health Networks (PHNs) and regional approaches.
Working with groups, the focus of Mindframe Plus is to empower and equip individuals to be better prepared for responding to suicide incidents or proactive suicide prevention communications.
