Dedicated to advancing research and learning in the field of suicide prevention
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.
Suicide in Queensland: Annual Report 2021
The Suicide in Queensland: Annual Report 2021 provides recent suicide trends in Queensland to help target and inform suicide prevention activities in Queensland by understanding the circumstances in which suicides occurred. This report includes information from 1990 to December 2020. The information comes from a public health surveillance system — the Queensland Suicide Register (QSR) and the interim Queensland Suicide Register (iQSR).
AISRAP provides services in research and evaluation, clinical service delivery, and training and education (RCT). Each arm of AISRAP is important in providing a comprehensive understanding of suicidal behaviour and suicide prevention.
