Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association

Tuesday, 5 March 2024 - 9:00am to Thursday, 7 March 2024 - 5:00pm
Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung Country

First Nations grassroots organisations across Australia are implementing truly impressive, culturally safe trauma informed suicide prevention initiatives that are actively working to prevent suicides within communities. We acknowledge that our communities know what works best for them in addressing/preventing suicide. We have witnessed and highlighted this important work at our previous conferences in 2023 and 2022.

The 2024 Indigenous Suicide Prevention Forum provides a platform for everyone who works within this challenging but essential sector to share their initiatives, tell their stories, ask questions of each other and form partnerships.

The Australian Indigenous Psychologists’ Association looks forward to welcoming you in Naarm.
