Laps for Life

This March, challenge yourself and swim to save lives. Whether you're new to the water or a competitive swimmer, you can get involved in Laps for Life in any way that suits you. You can swim laps at your local pool, hit the beach or take part in an ocean swim! Set a goal that suits you, and use our handy lap calculator to decide how many sessions you'll need. You don’t need to swim every day, just pick the days and times that suit your lifestyle. Whether it’s freestyle, backstroke, butterfly or doggy-paddle, just get swimming. Laps for Life takes place from 1–31 March, and you can swim at any time throughout the month. Funds raised via Laps for Life support the work of youth mental health service ReachOut.


Lived Experience of Suicide Summit

Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart 1 Davey Street, Hobart

A powerful opportunity to lend your voice of lived experience, connect in person, and bring your passion for change to this forum that only takes place once every 2 years! This signature event on the suicide prevention calendar provides an interactive workshop-style forum that connects people with a lived experience of suicide with key sector organisations, researchers, clinicians, government departments and non-government organisations. It provides a platform for multi-levelled collaboration to explore innovative solutions and bring about change. Participants at LE Summit 2023 will delve deeply into emerging innovations in suicide prevention, contribute to future research and service development, and develop connections and avenues for further integration that will extend beyond the Summit. The event will also further amplify partnership, growth, and sustainability of the lived experience of suicide movement. The LE Summit offers a supportive space and platform for robust discussions and an opportunity to challenge our thinking, strengthen collaborations and evolve the role of lived experience of suicide in Australia.
