Relationships, resilience and respect: Responding to vulnerability in life

The National Suicide Prevention Conference 2017, organised by Suicide Prevention Australia, provides a platform for the exchange of ideas to help achieve the agenda of halving suicides in Australia over the next ten years. This year the focus is on how the protective factors of connections, resilience and context can be utilised to strengthen individual and community resilience and capabilities.
The conference will provide ample opportunity for professionals in the suicide prevention and health promotion fields to develop skills for on-the-ground practice, network with colleagues and learn from recent research.
Key elements of the conference
- Plenary sessions showcasing the best work from around the globe and in Australia.
- Recognising the importance of the voice of lived experience, the program will have strong representation from people with a lived experience of suicide.
