2023 Indigenous Suicide Prevention Forum

The 2023 Indigenous Suicide Prevention Forum (March 21-23, Meeanjin/Brisbane) is an event hosted by the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association (AIPA), in partnership with Aventedge, aimed at bringing together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander grassroots workers, psychologists, lived experience delegates, Elders, and more, to discuss ways we can improve mental health support, living standards, and institutional equity for Indigenous Australians.


This is a forum where you will hear important updates on community, policy, and research initiatives, but it is also a place where you will be able to share your story, connect with cultural healers, and network with your peers from across the country.
