Every Life Matters – He Tapu te Oranga o ia Tangata: Suicide Prevention Strategy 2019–2029 and Suicide Prevention Action Plan 2019–2024 for Aotearoa New Zealand (Every Life Matters) describes what we aim to achieve for suicide prevention over the next 10 years. The framework consists of:
- a vision, setting the long-term aspiration for the strategy and suicide prevention in Aotearoa New Zealand
- outcomes sought through the strategy to support the vision
- focus areas, which describe actions needed to support the vision
- collective ownership and shared ways of working that must underpin delivery of the vision.
Specific actions that will be undertaken to deliver on the strategy are outlined in the accompanying action plan.
