The interactive sessions provide health professionals with a unique opportunity to help ignite the discussion on suicide prevention. They also aim to encourage knowledge exchange and idea generation towards addressing current issues within the suicide prevention sector.
Learn. Connect. Inspire.
We want you to learn, share expertise and inspire your contemporaries. Ultimately, the workshops are all about collaborating with like-minded health professionals towards preventing self-harm or suicide.
Guest speakers and a panel of experts will work with you through issues and topics relevant to you and your state. The day will begin with a facilitated networking opportunity to allow you to get to know your colleagues a little better.
