The IASP World Congress is the primary global collaborative opportunity for expert thinking related to suicide and suicide prevention, bringing together academics, researchers, practitioners, those with lived experience, diverse backgrounds, and innovators associated with suicide prevention efforts or working within suicide prevention related topics. We look forward to welcoming you.
Due to the rolling restrictions and border closures in Australia, we are now moving towards a 100% virtual World Congress. Whilst we are sad not to welcome you in person, the virtual aspect of this event is a unique opportunity to benefit from all congress content. If you have any questions about the upcoming World Congress, please first check our FAQ page.

Our Logo Story

Being With Nature
Indigenous artist, Alara Geebung (Cameron), forged the connections between the Gold Coast's natural beauty in the unique piece of art that aims to portray the importance of connected pathways coming together. The artwork has been created to welcome the IASP World Congress to Gold Coast, Australia and is represented within the new IASP Gold Coast logo.


The Roses in the Ocean Lived Experience of Suicide Summit 2021 will be held at the Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast from the 19 – 20 September 2021. Please read more about this wonderful event at the Roses in the Ocean website. The IASP World Congress will follow from 21 – 24 September at the Gold Coast Convention Centre.
