The Suicide Prevention Research Fund was established by the Federal Government to support research into suicide prevention. The aim of the fund is to support world-class Australian research, and facilitate the rapid translation of knowledge into more effective services for individuals, families and communities.
Suicide Prevention Australia manages the fund on behalf of the Federal Government. The Research Advisory Committee, chaired by Professor Don Nutbeam, guides the work of the fund with the support of expert researchers, service providers and people with lived experience of suicide.
The Suicide Prevention Research Fund also aims to address gaps in suicide prevention research.
