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.

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.
