Evaluation of an Aftercare Service Model in an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation
In this evaluation, we aimed to understand the effectiveness of the Aftercare Service and its service delivery model in reducing suicide. In addition, we were asked to identify areas of the service which worked well and areas in which the model could be further strengthened. We also sought to identify the potential for replication of the service model with other Aboriginal communities in South Australia.
