Join Our Suicide Prevention Mission

Suicide Prevention Australia is the national peak body for suicide prevention.

We exist to provide a clear, collective voice, so that together we can save lives. Our members are central to everything we do.

We believe that through collaboration and shared purpose, we can work towards our ambition of a world without suicide.

At Suicide Prevention Australia, we are guided by lived experience and advocate for a whole-of-government approach to reducing suicide, encompassing not just mental health but social, economic and community risk and protective factors.

We continuously strive to influence policy reform, facilitate education, build best practice, promote research and enable meaningful collaborations, whilst representing the voices of our members on key government and sector committees.

Opportunities

  • Advocacy and Policy: we consult with members to help inform our advocacy and policy work with key stakeholders such as state and federal governments, media, other peak bodies, businesses, and communities. Through collaboration, we have seen firsthand how insights from our members and people with lived experience have been translated into tangible outcomes that have positively impacted our community.
  • Building Capacity: we offer a series of initiatives designed to enhance best practice in suicide prevention. They include our Suicide Prevention Accreditation Program, Best Practice Directory and Competency Framework.
  • Knowledge Sharing and Upskilling: Learnlinc is a platform that aims to facilitate learning and skill development in the field of suicide prevention. It offers a range of resources and educational opportunities for individuals and organisations, enabling them to identify their learning needs, achieve learning goals, and apply that knowledge effectively in suicide prevention efforts.
  • Data and Information: through our regular email communication, we translate data, research and information in a timely way that provides relevant insights that can be used to inform your work in suicide prevention.
  • Events: we host a range of face to face and online events, with preferential rates for members and invitations to member-only events. Our events provide unique networking and collaboration opportunities, whilst sharing the latest thinking to promote best practice and innovation in suicide prevention.
  • Panels and Committees: we invite our members to participate in various panels and committees, including our State Committees, which act as a corridor for knowledge sharing and discussion of current and emerging issues at the jurisdictional level.
  • Promotion: we provide members with the opportunity to promote their organisations news, programs, events, services, and job vacancies through our channels which have a reach of more than 175,000 people.
  • Funding: Together with our members, we continue to grow the sector’s funding pool. This includes our National Suicide Prevention Research Fund, that we deliver on behalf of the Federal Government. Qualifying members also receive exclusive access to the Strategic Grants platform, GEM Local, which has over 6,500 grants across multiple sectors and funding resources. This benefit is for not-for-profit members who have an annual revenue under $1 million.
