World Suicide Prevention Day

This September, we are encouraging everyone to take action by getting involved in World Suicide Prevention Day on Saturday the 10th. The day is observed by more than 60 countries, with the aim of promoting stigma reduction, policy change, help seeking, and remembering those we have lost to suicide, those who have attempted suicide, and those who are living with the grief of losing someone.   Almost 10 million Australians know someone who has been impacted by suicide, that’s almost half the country. At Suicide Prevention Australia we believe everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide. Whether it is on World Suicide Prevention Day or any day of the year.

ProfessionaLE: Working in peer work roles

Online

Some people say that they would like to use their lived experience to connect and support others who may be experiencing suicidal distress. This distress may be as a result of their own experiences with suicidal distress, bereavement or because they may care for someone else. One way those with a LE of suicide can connect is through Peer Work or as a Peer Care Companion. In suicide prevention having a lived experience of suicide, is recognised as an important part of what can contribute to being an effective Peer Worker/Peer Care Companion. Being able to you draw on your own experience of suicide can help to create an environment of shared experience and empower someone else to cope in a similar situation. Join Hayley as she chats with Lindy Zillman about her experience as a Peer Care Companion and Peer Mentor in the area of suicide prevention. In an informal Q&A style session, we will be chatting about building the skills you need for Peer Work that has a Peer Approach and what a peer approach can look like. We will also be talking about the importance of self care, self insight and wellbeing in these working environments. If […]

WEBINAR: Ethical issues in designing suicide prevention studies

Online

Over the last two years the Centre for Mental Health, The University of Melbourne, has conducted a series of studies regarding ethical issues in suicide research. These included studies involving (Australian and international) researchers, representatives of human research ethics committees, and people with lived experience of suicide. Most recently, they comprised an expert consensus study regarding ethical issues to consider in designing suicide prevention studies. The webinar will be building on this research and aims to explore how the recommendations from the consensus study can be implemented and used in practice. Results of these studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals, including open access.
