The Australian Psychological Society (APS), with the funding of the then Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing, has developed a professional development training package for allied health professionals who work in the area of Indigenous suicide prevention with a focus on the Kimberley region. The aim of the Indigenous Suicide Prevention Training is to develop an allied health professional's understanding of suicide prevention specific to individuals and communities within that region. However, the course also offers training for clinicians who work generally with Indigenous communities. Upon completing this training course and after successfully completing the required assessment tasks for each module, eligible psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses, occupational therapists and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers will be eligible to work under the ATAPS Suicide Prevention Service.
