About the Child and Youth Design Project
The HOPE Program is a core component of Victoria’s suicide prevention framework, which aims to halve Victoria’s suicide rate by 2025. This current project is intended to establish Child and Youth HOPE services at Monash Children’s Hospital through a process of local co-design. Establishment of this new service is expected to give children and young people who are intentionally self-harming, experiencing suicidal ideation, or have attempted suicide a rapid and intensive form of support that is designed to prevent rate of recurrence and ultimately reduce rates of suicide among children and young people. Importantly, this includes engagement and support of their parents/carers, families and extended support networks in assertive outreach provided. All stakeholders (children, young people, their parents/carers, families and service providers) will work together through a process of local co-design to establish a Child and Youth HOPE service at the Early in Life Mental Health Service (ELMHS) at Monash Health.
