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.

Developed in 1996, the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) is a national and international suicide prevention research centre. AISRAP is the leading Australian centre for research, clinical practice, education and community action for suicide prevention, sought after for the quality of the advice and the outcomes it provides in linking research and practice.
Our fathers, brothers, sons and friends are dying by suicide, every minute of every day. We won’t accept this. To make change happen, Movember focuses on mental health and suicide prevention interventions through a male lens. We focus on early intervention, engaging men and boys and working to their strengths.
The Commission monitors and reports on investment in mental health and suicide prevention initiatives, provides evidence based policy advice to Government and disseminates information on ways to continuously improve Australia’s mental health and suicide prevention systems, and acts as a catalyst for change to achieve those improvements.
