IASPGoldCoast2021 31ST WORLD CONGRESS Griffith University 21ST - 24TH SEPTEMBER 2021 - GOLD COAST, QLD, AUSTRALIA HYBRID EVENT

Registrations Open

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.

As COVID-19 continues to impact the way we work, the IASP GOLD COAST 2021 World Congress is the first fully hybrid suicide prevention meeting allowing us to engage, interact and share both virtually AND in-person. Whilst international travel restrictions are a reality and travel opportunities remain uncertain, we are fully committed to providing a unique congress experience both on the Gold Coast and online.

We appreciate and understand the value of coming together in person and in light of the current circumstances, we will convert virtual attendance tickets to in-person attendance tickets, if travel restrictions into Australia ease, up to 1 September 2021. Current guidance from the Australian Government can be found, here and for Queensland, here.
