Connect 2020 webinar 4: Breaking new ground through innovative research

There has never been greater momentum behind suicide prevention. With funding and research hitting record levels in 2020, Australia is at the forefront of innovation in evidence-based mental health and suicide prevention programs. Now, it’s time to hear from the researchers behind some of the ground-breaking suicide prevention trials and research in Australia.

Our speakers will explore some of the research currently happening in Australia. In a session moderated by Professor Don Nutbeam, we’ve also invited Suicide Prevention Research Fund grant recipients to present a ‘Project Snapshot’ – a 3-minute outline of what they’re researching, and some of the early results they are seeing.

Don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity to hear directly from those at the forefront of research and innovation in suicide prevention.
