Suicide Prevention Australia is the national peak body for the suicide prevention sector. We exist to provide a clear, collective voice for suicide prevention, so that together we can save lives. We believe that through collaboration and shared purpose, we can work towards our ambition of a world without suicide.
Members are central to everything we do
We’re a member-based organisation that’s guided by people with lived experience of suicide. We count among our members the largest and many of the smallest organisations working in suicide prevention, practitioners, researchers and community leaders.

We acknowledge the unique and important understanding provided by people with lived and living experience of suicide. We remember those we have lost to suicide and acknowledge the suffering suicide brings when it touches our lives. We recognise that lived experience is integral to all aspects of suicide prevention policy, practice, and research.
Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of all Country throughout Australia. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture and pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia.
We acknowledge the value people with diverse backgrounds and experiences provide to the development and progress of the suicide prevention sector. We welcome all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity and other defining characteristics to work together with us as we turn the trend towards zero.
