  • Brighter tomorrows: Dynamic simulation modelling for local suicide prevention

    Researchers have shown how a groundbreaking modelling tool can predict the likely impact of a range of suicide prevention interventions in Australia, helping to guide future activity and investment.

    The research, using a kind of “what if” tool called dynamic simulation modelling, is being pioneered by a partnership involving Western Sydney University, The Brain and Mind Centre, The Sax Institute and research consultancy Synergia.

    By bringing together disparate sources of data and information, the computer modelling creates a decision-support tool that can test the impact of different combinations of policies and interventions in the virtual world, before they are implemented in the real world.
