Annual National Suicide Prevention Conference 2012

Format Conference
Presenters Dr. Thomas Joiner, Dr. Jerry Reed, Prof. Peter Chen, Jonathan Nicholas, Prof. Stephen Platt
Description Suicide Prevention Australia is excited to announce the Annual National Suicide Prevention Conference 2012 titled Innovation in Suicide Prevention - Bringing it Together. The conference will take place on the 11th and 12th of October, in the beautiful city of Sydney at the coast side Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach.

The conference themes will include (but not be limited to):
-Workplace Suicide Prevention
-Public Health
-Community Awareness and Education
-Sector Coordination
-Technology / Youth and Innovation
-Indigenous Suicide Prevention
-GLBTI Suicide Prevention
-Lived experience of suicide

The conference seeks to provide a forum to bring together researchers, practitioners, policy makers, industry and those with a lived experience in order to break down (perceived) divisions between these groups; and provide a common platform for all representatives engaged in the field of suicide prevention and crisis intervention to share and exchange knowledge, skills and experiences; and facilitate the development of a cohesive, united, and responsive suicide prevention sector.

We will be developing a program that includes extensive delegate involvement - we want this to be an interactive experience that sets a new benchmark for this type of conference.
