This edition presents key learnings from the IASP 10th Asia Pacific Conference, with a focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide prevention and lived experience research.

Also featured is a Q&A with Everymind PhD student, Andrew McMahon who presented at the IASP APAC Pecha Kucha event on his research about ‘Caring for those who care - exploring the experiences and needs of family and friends caring for a person who has attempted suicide’.

A recently published paper explores some of the issues related to suicide prevention in older persons; and a summary of what implementation science is and how it can be used to improve the adoption of suicide prevention research into practice has been included.

New research studies include ​an economic evaluation of barriers at bridge and cliff sites preventing suicides; and prevention of suicide in refugees and asylum seekers.
