Broken Hill Safe Haven Café | Post Implementation Co-Designs

As part of the NSW Strategic Framework for Suicide Prevention 2018-2023 and the state’s Toward Zero Suicide initiatives, Roses in the Ocean was engaged by the NSW Ministry of Health to lead and deliver the local co-designs for the establishment of twenty Safe Havens, as an alternative to emergency departments. This co-design process was developed with two distinct phases. The first brought together the voices and perspectives of those who have a lived experience suicidal of crisis, people who care for them, health professionals and other relevant community representatives to guide the design and establishment of the service. The second phase brings back these voices and seeks to include current and past guests of the Safe Haven to reflect on the service, share experiences and insights and to contribute to the continued improvement of the Safe Haven, this phase is the Post Implementation Co-design.

The original co-design for the Broken Hill Safe Haven Café was completed in November 2020 and the Safe Haven Café was opened in March 2021. We are now ready to work through the Post Implementation Co-design with you.

Roses in the Ocean’s approach to co-design is grounded in the values of Roses in the Ocean itself and is built on general co-design principles: honest conversation, equal partnership, inclusion, shared decision making, innovation, purposeful involvement, and integration. In support of this, the Post Implementation Co-design is being delivered across three sessions providing all participants with a space to share their insights and experience.

We invite current and past guests of the Broken Hill Safe Haven Café, the original participants of the co-design, Safe Haven Team, LHD representatives, and all other key stakeholders and community services that have developed a partnership with the Safe Haven to participate as follows:
