Mindframe Overview


Mindframe provides a number of practical written and online resources for the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention sectors which provide guidance on how to safely and responsibly discuss suicide and mental illness with the media.

These resources are based on up-to-date evidence about best-practice reporting. While their content has been updated annually, the style, layout and formats have not been updated since 2002 (when the last full-scale consultation with the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention sectors occurred).

As such, the Mindframe team are currently redeveloping these resources to ensure the content and format is still current and useful.

This survey is a key component in the consultation process with the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention sectors. It aims to elicit broad input into the preferred content, style and format that can then be used to inform the redevelopment of the Mindframe resources as well as future directions.

Questions are relevant to those who have used, and those less familiar with,the Mindframe resources.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mindframe project team on (02)4024 6904 or mindframe@hnehealth.nsw.gov.au.

Mindframe is funded by the Australia Government under the National Suicide Prevention Program.

This survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Any answers you provide will remain strictly confidential and secured on a password encrypted computer. The survey is currently live and has been extended to Wednesday, 5 June 2013.

It is important to have as many stakeholder responses as possible. As an incentive, anyone who completes the survey will go into the draw to win a $100 voucher. If you'd like to enter, please add your contact details in the space provided at the end of the survey.

Talking about these issues can be challenging. If you are feeling distressed after participating in this survey, talk to someone you trust or you can call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.
