Media Release: National Survey to uncover the exposure and impact of suicide in Australia

22 April 2016

​Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA) today launched a National survey that will aim to reveal the exposure to, and impact of suicide in Australia.​

SPA in collaboration with Head Researcher, Professor Myf Maple from the University of New England is conducting this project to better understand the magnitude of suicide in Australia. 

The purpose of this survey is to gain a clearer understanding of how individuals are affected by suicide, which may in turn better inform where funds and services are directed in suicide prevention.

A report on the exposure to, and impact of, suicide in Australia will be published on World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September 2016, with preliminary results to be presented at the National Suicide Prevention Conference in July 2016.

To participate in this research, please complete the survey online, and share with your networks.

Please note: Any information or personal details gathered in the course of the study will remain confidential. No individual will be identified by name in any publication of the results.
