Our Events

Among the many benefits that Suicide Prevention Australia members enjoy is the opportunity to attend the numerous Suicide Prevention Australia events we conduct throughout the year.

Suicide Prevention Australia aims to provide members with information and networking opportunities on a regular basis whether through our annual headline event, the National Suicide Prevention Conference, which is open to everyone, or through our member-only events, such as Federal Budget webinars or grassroots events like States in Focus Week.
