HOPE Enhancement Project

Hospital Outreach Post-suicidal Engagement (HOPE)

HOPE provides assertive and intensive outreach support for people at the point of hospital discharge that are identified having a suicide attempt or engaged in suicidal ideation with preparatory behaviour. The aim of the initiative is to reduce subsequent suicide attempts and improve quality of life and emotional resilience, by providing the target cohort with assertive, and psychosocial support in the community for a period of up to three months post discharge from hospital. The program also supports the persons support network to identify and build the protective factors that reduce the risk of suicide attempt/completed suicide.

The Royal Commission also recognised that the limited service hours impeded access, and the needs of people who experience suicidality and, are in receipt of support from community-based specialist mental health services, may extend beyond the capacity of these services.
