Turning Point to use Google grant to set up suicide monitoring system

Eastern Health's addiction treatment and research centre Turning Point has won a $1.2 million grant from Google to develop a national suicide monitoring system over the next three years.

The project will use artificial intelligence methodologies to streamline coding of national ambulance suicide-related attendance data, which will then be used to inform public health prevention and interventions, as well as identifying populations and geographical hotspots for targeted responses.
