#NSPC24 Highlights

Suicide Prevention Australia welcomed over 750 colleagues from around the nation in Adelaide for the 25th National Suicide Prevention Conference.

The voice of lived experience was strong, compelling and thought provoking. Australia’s track record in world-class research and innovation was evident, with some of the brightest minds in research coming together to share leading insights.

The conference theme ‘Collective Courage. Accelerate Impact’ was amplified by our keynote speakers and special dignitaries such as His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC, The Hon. Emma McBride, The Hon. Chris Picton and The Hon. Anne Ruston, to name a few. They not only provided hope but motivated us all to consider ways to create meaningful change.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their support, importantly our Principal Sponsor, HESTA, Principal Partners; South Australian Government, Business Events Adelaide and Adelaide Convention Centre, and StandBy Support After Suicide who made sure we were supported onsite.

Thank you to everyone who joined us, we look forward to uniting the sector once again next year!
