Lived Experience

LIVED EXPERIENCE AT SUICIDE PREVENTION AUSTRALIA

Lived experience is central to everything we do at Suicide Prevention Australia. Working with people who have lived experience of suicide allows us to better represent our members’ views and experiences to government and other external groups.

People with lived experience are uniquely placed to inform how we can support people through a crisis.

A lived experience of suicide can range from suicidal thoughts, surviving a suicide attempt, caring for someone through crisis, being bereaved by suicide or being touched by suicide in any way.

LIVED EXPERIENCE PANEL

The Lived Experience Panel was established in 2019 and we draw upon panel members for a variety of activities.

During the year we will be talking to our members, including the Lived Experience Panel, and advocating for practical solutions that will save lives.

Members of the Lived Experience Panel supports Suicide Prevention Australia by:

  1. Providing input into the development of policy and policy document review
  2. Participation in committees
  3. Training/conference/webinars
  4. Providing input into suicide prevention service design.

Suicide Prevention Australia remembers those we have lost to suicide and acknowledges the suffering suicide brings when it touches our lives. We are brought together by experience and are unified by hope.
