Jewish Suicide Prevention Strategy Video

The first and only Jewish specific suicide prevention strategy in Australia, the Jewish Suicide Prevention Strategy (JSPS), initiated and coordinated by JewishCare NSW, was developed in response to a number of people attempting and taking their own lives within the community.

A steering committee was formed, comprising representatives from 20 communal organisations, including local Jewish schools, Rabbis, Jewish crisis and emergency medical services, and Jewish Youth Groups and mainstream organisations.
