Roses in the Ocean is very proud to be bringing you the Lived Experience of Suicide Summit 2021, sponsored by Black Dog Institute, Vic Gov, Queensland Health, Everymind and with headline sponsor, Beyond Blue.  The LE Summit provides the opportunity to further explore and progress lived experience integration in suicide prevention policy, research, services and initiatives.

The LE Summit will provide the platform to continue to push the boundaries of thinking for innovative suicide prevention, ensuring that the voice of lived experience of suicide is central. The event is workshop based with a focus on collaborative projects, new concept exploration and robust discussions – all of which begin at the LE Summit and continue on after the event.

The LE Summit is the lead-in event to the IASP 31st World Congress, which is now being held completely online on 21-24 September 2021. Scroll down to read more about this important event.
