Abstract: Indigenous populations have been recognised to have elevated rates of suicide in many countries around the world, including Australia. However, to date, comprehensive understanding of the complexities of suicides among persons of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin (in the report referred to as Indigenous populations or Indigenous Australians) has been limited due to scarce epidemiological evidence about its prevalence and specific factors that distinguish Indigenous suicides from those among non-Indigenous populations. This report aims to fill in this gap by providing an analysis of the incidence of suicide among the Indigenous population in Queensland, thereby increasing the understanding and awareness of the distinctive aspects of Indigenous suicide.
