Prevention is crucial to addressing Australia's suicide "epidemic", according to the Border head of Lifeline.
Albury-Wodonga Lifeline volunteers receive nearly 6000 calls to the support service each year - which equates to about 16 calls each day - from those in need.
Chief executive Matt Burke said prevention was "vital" to reducing the toll.
About 3000 Australians are lost to suicide each year.
"If there's anything we can so - in this case it's a physical structure - of course we would support it," he said of a proposal to install barriers on the Melrose Drive overpass.
"Our goal is for a suicide free Australia.
"I'd suggest that prevention is vitally important.
"That's what Lifelife Australia is about."
The installation of the five barriers in Albury followed her passing, and Mr Baker said it was "a sensible thing to do".
"It's another thing that should be done in the fight to prevent these unnecessary deaths," he said.
"I speak to Ken regularly.
"I knew him prior to his wife's death and since then I do speak to him regularly.
"It's with people like Ken and others speaking out that we will instigate the change that is required.
"It's brave for him to be speaking out.
"I think it's a conversation that everyone can have instead of sweeping it aside.
"That's the only way we can get on top of this epidemic."
Concerns have also been regularly raised about the standard of services at mental health clinic Nolan House.
People with acute mental health issues have been turned away from the service and have later self-harmed.
Mr Baker said he wanted to see funding for mental health to be on par with funding for physical ill health.
"Nolan House is a case in point where our main mental health facility is nowhere near as important to the decision makers, by the look of it, as the rest of the hospital is," he said.
"Suicide has a massive effect ... more than 3000 Australians end their life each year and it should not be tolerated."
Member for Benambra Bill Tilley said urgent funding should be made available for safety barriers on the Melrose Drive bridge.
Mr Tilley met with Mr Wright following the loss of his wife last year.
He spent several hours at his home as Mr Wright experienced "incredible grief".
"It was still very raw," he said.
While safety barriers have been installed in five sites in Albury, there is no such barrier on the Melrose Drive overpass.
Mr Tilley raised the issue with Minister for Roads Jaala Pulford in Parliament on Wednesday.
He said Carolyn Wright drove past the NSW bridges and stopped near the Wodonga overpass before taking her life.
"It's a significant issue," he said.
"We've seen other people be pulled back from self harming and potentially killing themselves.
"The NSW government and Albury Council got together and were able to do five bridges.
"I don't consider it to be a big ask."
Mr Tilley said the railing on Melrose Drive was little more than a metre high which posed a danger to pedestrians.
"I truly believe there is an easy remedy to this," he said.
"It shouldn't be so bloody hard."
He urged Ms Pulford to make the project a priority and said progress had been frustratingly slow.
