The Learnlinc platform facilitates learning and skill development in the field of suicide prevention. It has over 150 resources and educational opportunities, enabling people to identify their learning needs, achieve learning goals, and apply that knowledge effectively in suicide prevention efforts.  

Similar to how workplaces have CPR or first-aid programs, Learnlinc offers a solution for upskilling in suicide prevention, allowing individuals and organisations to enhance their capabilities and contribute to Suicide Prevention Australia’s vision of preventing suicide.
