Auckland - Tuesday, 19 June 2018

Zero Suicide reflects a commitment by healthcare and other leaders to make suicide a ‘never event’ for those in our care.

We are seeing momentum for change and a move to service collaboration aimed at lowering the incidence of suicide in New Zealand.

Join us in Auckland at the National Zero Suicide Forum on Tuesday, 19 June 2018, where you will hear from thought leaders and suicide prevention practitioners from the US, Australia and New Zealand, about what is working (and isn’t) and explore how your organisation can apply a Zero Suicide mindset to suicide prevention in it’s services.

This one-day forum will explore examples of excellence in crisis care, showing how improvements can be made at all levels of service delivery to better support people at risk of suicide. It will challenge the belief that suicides are inevitable and break down the barriers that stop us from providing integrated care to people in distress. It will also address the importance of support for family, whanau and other loved ones as they try to help someone who is suicidal.

Case studies will be presented by international and NZ practitioners.

Who Should Attend

This forum will promote adopting a Zero Suicide approach as the basis for suicide prevention activity in New Zealand, and celebrate those whose practice is making a positive difference.

The National Zero Suicide Forum is designed for delegates and decision makers who provide support in their communities to people with suicidal thoughts. It also invites those with a lived experience who wish to drive down the numbers of deaths from suicide in their communities.
