In 2021 Suicide Prevention Australia is celebrating the 18th Annual LiFE Awards recognising excellence in suicide prevention.
This prestigious national event attracts diverse nominations with an interest in suicide prevention and support of those affected by suicide across Australia. A suicide prevention program is one that is implemented to address, prevent, or respond to suicidal behaviours and their impact on people, families, communities and the Australian population. Nominations can include business, industry, media, community, government, youth, research and medicine.
Nominations are received from all over Australia, and every year we are overwhelmed by the number of quality nominations showcasing the important and innovative work that many Australians are doing in the prevention of suicide and support of people affected by suicide.
Nominees typically range from mainstream programs to community-based organisations and dedicated individuals. The awards celebrate the commitment and energy of the nominees and their vital contribution to the reduction of suicide within our communities.
Each and every submission is important to help showcase the important work around Australia.
