Developed in 1996, the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) is a national and international suicide prevention research centre. AISRAP conducts public health surveillance of suspected suicides and conducts individual studies with government, industry bodies and non-government organisations. Since 2004, AISRAP has operated a specialised outpatient clinic for people with a history of suicidal ideation or behaviour. AISRAP also provides education and training for health and allied health professionals, offering postgraduate programs in suicidology (Certificate, Master and Master with Honours) and accredited training.
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. We aim to promote high quality research, clinical practice, and education for the prevention of suicidal behaviour in Australia.
