PURPOSE

To equip every practicing mental health professional in Australia with global best-practice knowledge and skills on suicide prevention, thereby making a tangible reduction on suicide rates.

Dear Mental/Allied Health Professional,

Suicide remains the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44.

As a mental health professional, you are the frontline of defence, and you will be required to work with suicidality.

You must be prepared.

The purpose of this Summit is to equip practicing mental health professionals in Australia with the most up-to-date, advanced knowledge and treatment options on suicide prevention.

To achieve that, we’ve assembled 15 of the most highly respected global experts on suicide into one online specialised Summit.

Over 3 days, April 12-14, you’ll have free access to all Summit sessions, live online. You will then have on-demand streaming access for an additional two weeks, from April 15 to April 28.

One of the most powerful resources we have to reduce suicide is our front-line mental health workforce. We believe that by providing every mental health practitioner in Australia with global best-practice know-how and skills, we can tangibly reduce suicide rates in Australia.

We see our role as bringing global best-practice education to Australian practitioners – for free. Your role is taking the time to learn and apply.

As we endeavour to save valuable lives, we look forward to seeing you at the online 2019 Suicide Prevention Summit.

An Unprecedented Body of Knowledge

The Summit brings together an unprecedented body of knowledge on suicidology and suicide prevention.

Australian mental health practitioners have this extraordinary opportunity to learn global best-practice strategies to treat and manage suicidal behaviour.

The 2019 Suicide Prevention Summit is streamed direct to your computer. All you need is an internet (preferably broadband) connected device with speakers to access the highest-quality CPD training available anywhere.

And if you can’t attend the event in real-time (we understand you have a busy schedule), you can access ALL the session content for a full 14 days (15-28 April) after the event, at your convenience.
