Indigenous SEWB is firmly established as a national strategic priority. Beyond Blue is considering where to invest its policy advocacy efforts to prevent suicide and improve mental health for all people in Australia. To bolster its advocacy efforts, Beyond Blue constructed the policy reform agenda project. In the project, a suite of compelling policy propositions will be developed that are then used for advocacy purposes. Currently, Beyond Blue is commissioning a series of evidence reviews, the utility of which will contribute to advocacy for change in the next wave of Australia’s mental health and suicide prevention policies.
