The service is not a frontline one, but helps implement the Taranaki action plan, increase community awareness, co-ordinate training and education, and support communities to design their own initiatives to reduce self-harm and suicide.

It was established as a result of the Taranaki Suicide Prevention and Postvention Action Plan 2015-17, a nationwide commitment from DHBs to combat the significant problem of suicide in Aotearoa.  You can read the document here or for further information email here
