2018 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference
The 2nd National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference and 2nd World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference was held in Perth, Western Australia in November 2018.
The theme of the conferences, Building a Stronger Tomorrow: Connecting our Communities Through Culture, reflects the unique opportunities for Indigenous people and communities, policy makers and researchers to share learnings and to collaborate on solutions that work in Indigenous suicide prevention. The Conferences attracted over 550 delegates from across Australia and around the world. The conferences were preceded by the World Indigenous Youth Cultural Exchange Day.
2016 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference
The inaugural Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference gathered together experts and members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and the wider community from across the country to Alice Springs, the heart of the Aboriginal nations. Over two days those gathered exchanged learnings, share lived experiences, built knowledge and inspired one another as to how we can best strengthen communities to tackle this entrenched tragedy.
