From the Margins to the Mainstream:

How to harness innovation to create best-practice responses to crisis and adversity?

Registrations Open

Preventing suicide is an agreed national policy priority in both Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, yet strategies differ across and within both countries. Supporting people in crisis and adversity is a focus of mental health, drug and alcohol and trauma services, in a constellation of prevention approaches. While whole of government approaches bring cohesion and direction, it is often the innovation bubbling up from the grass roots that replenishes the mainstream with fresh ideas.

In this Forum we will hear State of the Nation Suicide Prevention updates from both countries and take stock of where they are leading us.

We will also go under the radar to explore the rich territory of Alternatives to Suicide and Early Intervention Programs. What is working on the ground across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand and what have been the challenges and learnings?

You will be equipped with the latest bi-national policy contexts and real-world program examples delivered by clinicians and peer workers, to help you in establishing and developing innovative programs that are responsive to people who are experiencing distress, suicidality and bereavement.
