Clinical Advisory Services Aotearoa (CASA) is a nation-wide mental health consultancy with particular expertise in suicide prevention and postvention.  CASA founded QPR New Zealand in 2008 since purchased by Walker Psychology and Consulting, Ltd.

Community Postvention Response Service

Sometimes it can be very difficult for communities to know whether suicide contagion is occurring, or whether the community should be concerned about the potential for this to occur.  CASA's Community Postvention Response Service offers a service whereby anyone can make contact and simply discuss what is happening in their community and what they are concerned about.  CPRS will collect information and work with the caller to decide what steps, if any, may be needed.  Service can be offered by telephone or through face to face meetings in the community.  This free service is available throughout New Zealand.
