[font=]The Situational Approach [/font][font=]- A new approach to suicide prevention: This approach acknowledges the predominant association of situational distress, rather than mental illness, with suicide (though in some cases the two are linked), and is principally informed by and responds to risk factors of a broad spectrum of difficult human experiences across the life span. This approach is also mindful of and wherever possible seeks to address: contextual, systemic, and socio-cultural risk and protective factors and determinants: the real world of individuals’ lived experience.[/font]

Suicide prevention initiatives that are preoccupied with detection of illness or disorder like major depression may well be putting people’s lives at risk, by not attending to forms of distress that don’t constitute illness or disorder, and yet which can result in suicidal ideation and suicide.
A useful corrective term that can help counter the current mental illness/disorder narrative, and provide a sounder basis for suicide prevention is situational distress.

Mental health. A state of mind.  :(

"Call for suicide-prevention barriers at Belfast bridge"

"Tiarna Dorton, pictured after she attempted suicide, is sharing her story in an effort to improve safety measures"

"If I went there that night and it had have been more difficult, 100%, I wouldn't have tried anything."
"It was less than three years ago that Tiarna Dorton tried to take her own life by jumping from a road bridge onto Belfast's Westlink."

 Screening 0 - 3 year olds for mental illness ?
 
The Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) recently published a number of articles and letters on their website expressing their concerns about a recommendation of the current Productivity Commission.
 
From Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights https://cchr.org.au/  (accessed Feb 5 2020):
 
1.25 Million 0-3 Year Olds to Be Screened for Mental Illness & at Risk of Being Drugged
 
The proposal to screen all 1.25 million children aged 0-3 years old is a result of Australia’s Productivity Commission’s Inquiry into Mental Health. The Productivity Commission is responsible for the accountability of government spending in all sectors. Specifically this inquiry was called to determine whether the current mental health programs are effective and if they deliver the best outcomes for children, families and the economy. They have released their Draft Report for feedback.
