IASP Organisational Strategy 2024-2028 News Post

IASP Launches New Five Year Organisational Strategy

IASP is delighted to introduce our organisational strategy for 2024-2028. 

The unveiling of the IASP‘s new strategy marks a significant milestone in the global effort to prevent suicide, setting a roadmap for coordinated action over the next five years and beyond. This strategy builds upon our previous successes and expands to address increased needs in low- and middle-income countries, where suicides are more prevalent and resources are scarcer. Our emphasis lies on core organisational principles such as inclusivity, diversity, and sustainability, prioritizing them alongside a commitment to collaborative partnerships that drive collective action and yield positive results.

Vision: Our vision is of a compassionate world, free of suicide.  

Mission: To prevent suicide and suicidal behaviour, to alleviate its effects, and to provide a forum for academicians, mental health professionals, crisis workers, volunteers, and lived experience.  

Values: Six key values are fundamental to the core of IASP’s mission and are reflected through our global membership which are central to the productivity of the Association: diversity and inclusivity; compassion and full recognition of lived experience; collaboration and transparency in all we do; prevention and support which drives the progress in reducing suicidal behaviour to which we strive to achieve. 

As we embark on this new chapter, this strategy will guide our actions towards a world where every life is valued and suicide is preventable. We hope that through our joint efforts we can turn our vision into reality in the next 5 years and beyond.
