National Suicide Prevention Conference -2024

April 30 - May 2

Now in its twenty-fifth year, you’re invited to be part of one of Australia’s most important events on the suicide prevention calendar. 

 Since 1999, the National Suicide Prevention Conference has established itself as the premier event on the suicide prevention calendar. The event presents a unique opportunity to bring the brightest minds together and latest thinking to promote excellence in suicide prevention. 

 Following the overwhelming success of 2023 in Canberra, the National Suicide Prevention Conference 2024 will provide a gateway to unite suicide prevention experts to showcase evidence-based solutions and robust discussion, focused on solutions for saving lives. 

 Suicide Prevention Australia is the peak body for suicide prevention and hosts this annual event.  

 Held Tuesday 30 April to Thursday 2 May 2024 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide, South Australia, the event will enable delegates to hear from keynote speakers, national leaders, participate in workshops and collaborate with peers. 

 The 2024 National Suicide Prevention Conference theme, ‘Collective Courage. Accelerate Impact’, aims to empower attendees to take meaningful actions, understand the real impact of their work, and contribute to collective efforts in suicide prevention.

The theme highlights the importance of collective action, measuring impact, learning from inspiring speakers, and providing support for impactful initiatives to prevent suicide. We are stronger together, and we can amplify our collective impact to create meaningful action. 

 Conference objectives: 

  • Increase sector commitment to participate in a collaborative approach to suicide prevention. 
  • Enhance community participation in suicide prevention activities. 
  • Expand the translation of research in suicide prevention. 
  • Facilitate the continuation and development of quality, evidence-based suicide prevention initiatives. 

 While it’s a long journey, it’s conferences like these that will help to reduce the number of lives lost to suicide. Tragically, over 3,000 people die by suicide each year. It’s important to remember that every life lost to suicide is heartbreaking. Every statistic represents a life lost and a cascade of grief amongst family, friends, schools, workplaces and community groups.
