About the Webinar
World Suicide Prevention Day is about raising awareness of suicide in our communities and identifying where and how we can work together collaboratively towards a world without suicide.
This year, we are hosting a free webinar to bring together key members of government, the suicide prevention sector and recipients of our LiFE Awards which recognise work with significant impacts on reducing suicide.
Almost 10 million Australians know someone who has been impacted by suicide, that’s almost half the country. World Suicide Prevention Day is about continuing to shine a light on suicide prevention and creating hope through action.
