"Aboriginal youth suicide and attempted suicide are issues of significant and increasing concern in Central Australia. However, at presentno systematic database exists to capture and collate information on suicides and suicide attempts and no coordinated referral pathways are available for agencies in the region. This qualitative project is grounded in key stakeholder perspectives and relevant literature. The study involved twenty two interviews with various stakeholders to inform the development of a standardised suicide data collection system and recommend appropriate referral pathways for relevant agencies in Central Australia." - Executive summary
