Integration & partnership with lived experience expertise

Embracing the skills & insight of people with a lived experience of suicide with purpose.

Supporting individuals and organisations, the sector, workplaces, services and government to integrate and partner with people with lived experience of suicide.

Integrating and partnering with people with lived experience of suicide and embracing lived experience insights has countless benefits. It is important to acknowledge however that in many cases it represents a culture change for organisations, and the opportunity for people without a lived experience to develop a far deeper understanding of suicide. People need to be supported through this process with a combination of preparatory education, ongoing support and skill development.
