The World Congress aims to put the issue of suicide on the agenda globally and regionally, but it also seeks to show that action must be taken locally. The traditional biennial IASP World Congress is an opportunity to engage with a diverse community of academics, researchers, clinicians, crisis workers, lived experience, volunteers and all associated with suicide prevention or working within suicide prevention related topics. It represents a rich platform for spreading knowledge and sharing local, national and international strategies for suicide prevention. The IASP World Congress is a multi-sectorial event highlighting multi-disciplinary approaches to preventing suicide in all its complexity.
The community day is a ½-day programme, which will be held on Saturday 23 September 2023 in Piran, aimed at members of the local community and the general public to raise awareness about suicidal behaviour, mental health issues and bereavement after suicide.
