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.
World Suicide Prevention Day Community Forum
Care For Life Suicide Prevention Network and AISRAP are co-hosting a World Suicide Prevention Day Community Forum on 10 September 2021 at Southport Community Centre.
The Queensland Mental Health Commission is proudly supporting the World Suicide Prevention Day Community Forum. The Commission oversees the development and implementation of Every life: The Queensland Suicide Prevention Plan 2019-2029.
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.
