30 April – 2 May 2024, Adelaide

The National Suicide Prevention Conference 2024 will mark 25 years since the peak body, Suicide Prevention Australia first started hosting the event.

Over the past 25 years, the National Suicide Prevention Conference has evolved into one of the most anticipated and recognised events in the suicide prevention calendar. With almost 700 delegates in attendance at last year’s Conference in Canberra.

The National Conference presents a unique opportunity to bring the sector together and share the latest thinking to promote best practice and innovation in suicide prevention.

This event provides a gateway to unite suicide prevention experts, showcase the latest research, share evidence-based solutions, and focus on saving lives.

Held from Tuesday 30 April to Thursday 2 May, 2024 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, the event will enable delegates to hear from leading keynote speakers, participate in workshops and networking and collaborate with their peers.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Collective Courage. Accelerate Impact.

The 2024 National Suicide Prevention Conference theme, ‘Collective Courage. Accelerate Impact’, aims to empower attendees to take meaningful action, understand the real impact of their work, and contribute to collective efforts in suicide prevention.

The theme highlights the importance of collective action, measuring impact, learning from inspiring speakers, and providing support for impactful initiatives to prevent suicide.

Join forces with suicide prevention experts, professionals, and advocates to harness the power of collective impact. Together, we can empower meaningful change and save lives.
