Providing world class specialised care and support

The Life Promotion Clinic is a unique place of care that provides specialised treatment and support for people who have attempted suicide and provides an alternative to community mental health and medical-based care.

About the clinic

The Life Promotion Clinic was set up in 2004 by Professor Diego De Leo, the Director of the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) at the time. The clinic is the only specialised outpatient service in Australia dedicated to the assessment and treatment of individuals at increased risk of suicide. All our clinicians have substantial experience in the care and management of individuals at risk of suicide and offer assessments as well as open-ended treatment options. Clinic staff include psychiatrists, psychiatry registrars, clinical psychologists, psychologists and an experienced administration team. By operating within a research environment, the clinic aims to collect vital information to develop the best possible protocols of clinical practice to reduce suicidal thoughts and  behaviours.
