Turning Points Panel Discussion

Over the last twelve months, people all over Australia have been impacted by natural disasters including bushfires, floods and extreme drought. The government is focusing on the long term mental health impacts of these events and we want to hear from you about how we can tackle emerging suicide risks and build a happy and safe Australian community.  

Suicide Prevention Australia's Turning Points: Imagine a world without suicide white paper, co-written with KPMG, examines emerging social and economic trends and their likely effect on Australians in the coming decade. The impact of changes in housing affordability, the gig economy and relationships must be creatively tackled if we are to reduce suicide risk. 

Join us at SPA's panel discussion event to become part of the problem solving effort. The event will bring together leading minds from the not for profit sector, business, research, and people with lived experience to discuss the three theme areas of the Turning Points report.

  • Dealing with the debt crisis
  • Navigating the gig economy
  • Friendship and family: social isolation in the information age

Hear from distinguished speakers and make your voice heard on these critical issues.

Speakers include John Brady from MATES in Construction, Ivan Frkovic, Commissioner of Queensland’s Mental Health Commission, Andrew Anderson, CEO United Synergies and Dr Meg Perceval, an OzHelp project manager.
