The Learning Hub, an initiative of Suicide Prevention Australia, is a continuous learning program for individuals to identify their learning needs, fulfil learning goals, and apply that learning to suicide prevention.
The Learning Hub helps individuals and organisations make informed choice about learning options within the suicide prevention sector, and for suicide prevention providers to promote their learning resources.

Everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention. The Learning Hub helps people access and apply learning, education and research across the suicide prevention sector and in every role.
Effective learning and development within the suicide prevention sector means connecting individuals with the learning that best meets their needs and circumstances, enabling them to make informed decisions about their learning.
We encourage organisations within the suicide prevention sector to use The Learning Hub for staff development as a way of ensuring a standard for building capacity and capability, and to provide better flow of shared knowledge and experience for the good of all.
The program was created in collaboration with a broad range of organisations and individuals experienced in suicide prevention and suicide prevention training to provide a place for individuals and organisations to identify and access a variety of learning activities provided by member organisations, and beyond, relevant to suicide prevention in Australia.
The Learning Hub will help individuals and organisations decide about which learning options meets their needs to work within the suicide prevention sector. It allows individuals and organisations to search from a range of suicide prevention providers who offer learning programs, workshops and other learning resources.
There is no cost to register for the Learning Hub. However, each of the learning activities, workshops and other resources are provided by individual organisations and there may be costs associated with the offerings, particularly if there are workshops or face-to-face sessions. There is no obligation to take fee-paying courses and you are able to accumulate your points with a combination of free or online resources.
No. Participation in the Learning Hub is optional. Many people and organisations will find the resources helpful for their ongoing learning specific for suicide prevention, but others may find that this does not suit their needs at this point in time. The Learning Hub is designed as a supported continuous learning program to continue to build capability and capacity across the sector and is available as a resource.
