Iasp Logo

Everymind suicide prevention staff are preparing to facilitate a range of presentations as part of this year’s International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) Asia Pacific Conference in New Zealand, commencing today.

In its eighth year, the IASP Conference will bring together researchers, practitioners, professionals, students, and those within the community impacted by suicide to share knowledge, skills, research and good practices in preventing suicide.

This year, Everymind will showcase its work leading best-practice communication in suicide prevention through its Life in Mind program. Recent challenges and learnings from national and international media engagement as part of Everymind’s Mindframe initiative will also be jointly-presented with researchers from the University of Melbourne.

The team is very pleased to represent Everymind and Australian suicide prevention work at this conference and will be on hand at an exhibition booth with information and resources. If you’re attending, we encourage you to come and say hello to the team and learn more about our local and national programs and initiatives.

Our LifeSpan Newcastle Coordinators, Tegan Cotterill and Katie McGill, will also be attending the conference to engage with national and international professionals.
