The Life Promotion Clinic was the first outpatient clinic in Australia to provide specialised treatment for suicidal behaviour. The primary goal of the Clinic is to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with suicidal behaviours. Referrals are accepted from Queensland public mental health services (e.g. Community Mental Health Services, public hospitals etc).
Life Promotion Clinic has been Independently funded from 2004 to early 2007 with donations received from members of the Community Action for the Prevention of Suicide and other private donors.
The Life Promotion clinic also involves the conduct of research into suicidal behaviour and its treatment.

Now mostly self-financed the Life Promotion Clinic would greatly benefit from continuing support of members of the community. This would allow the clinic to adequately address the increasing demand in practical suicide prevention work.
Donations are fully tax deductible; they have to be made to the Griffith University Foundation. Please specify that you are contributing to the work of the life Promotion Clinic.
