Our inaugural Lived Experience SUMMIT 2018 was held on August 21 & 22.  Over the two days 171 delegates came together to collaboratively work on new and existing projects and research initiatives, contribute to the ongoing evolution of lived experience, join in robust discussions and develop their skills.  People with Lived experience of suicide, sector organisations and government stood shoulder to shoulder to find new ways of saving lives and reducing emotional pain.

This national initiative provided a forum to connect our extensive Lived Experience Collective with experts from five key focus areas within suicide prevention: Workplace, Clinical, Research, Hospital, Health & Community Services, Digital
