Multi-Agency Data Integration Project (MADIP) - Suicide prevention analytics
The aim of the Project is to gain greater insight into the prevalence of suicide and its relationship with risk and protective factors and social determinants.
This information will be used in the development and refinement of suicide prevention policies and strategies, including helping to assist in mapping need and services to ensure supports are delivered at the right times to the right people in the right places.
