Posted 16th April 2021 by Gabrielle Dunlevy in General SPA Symposium 2021

Life in Mind is proud to be involved in the Suicide Prevention Australia Symposium 2021, supporting the sharing of latest knowledge and research and connecting suicide prevention and mental health sector colleagues.

Suicide Prevention Australia is the national peak body for suicide prevention and its annual symposium, held 19-22 April 2021, will attract around 500 delegates.

Project Lead Amanda McAtamney said Life in Mind played a vital role as a conduit for the sector’s professionals and communities to access the latest information on policy, research, programs and training.

“The symposium will present the latest knowledge about suicide prevention, and Life in Mind will be there to help unpack this for practitioners and the community,” Ms McAtamney said.

“The Life in Mind gateway exists to encourage collaboration and enhance knowledge sharing. The team looks forward to learning and amplifying the excellent work and important discussions that are presented at this year’s event.”

As part of its participation in the symposium, Life in Mind will have a virtual booth for engaging with delegates, providing information about the portal and the National Communications Charter.

The Life in Mind team will also live tweet over the four-day conference, sharing insights from international keynote speakers including Carla na Nagara, Director of the Suicide Prevention Office in the Ministry of Health New Zealand, and Professor Rory O'Connor of the University of Glasgow.
