The meaningful inclusion and engagement of people with a lived experience of suicide is a new phenomenon, and Australia is paving the way internationally.
This national initiative will provide a forum to connect our extensive Lived Experience Collective with experts from five key focus areas within suicide prevention:
- Hospital, Health & Community Services
The Lived Experience Sumit will explore the critical role of lived experience in suicide prevention and provide a unique opportunity for organisations, government, service providers and people with lived experience to come together to learn from each other, develop important working relationships, and inform the next phase of lived experience evolution.
The event will be workshop-based with organisations and researchers bringing specific projects or topics of discussion to the table for lived experience input and guidance. Opportunity then exists for project participants to remain connected and continue working together.
