About the second World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference, Perth 2018

In 2016, the Turamarama Declaration was endorsed at the inaugural World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference in Rotorua, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Since then, the Declaration has travelled the globe with the majority of people supporting the Turamarama Declaration as a means for addressing Indigenous suicide.

The second World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference will be an international event that encourages Indigenous nations worldwide to gather and validate our cultural norms and realities, whilst looking at how we contribute to reducing suicide and solutions that work and promote the strength of Indigenous led suicide prevention program

We are proud to host this Conference to create an international stage for engagement, sharing and future shaping of globally relevant Indigenous led solutions in Indigenous suicide prevention, data collection and research.

We welcome all services, projects and programs that are working in Indigenous suicide prevention, social and emotional wellbeing and Indigenous mental health. We encourage you to submit an abstract, to attend, to share learnings and experiences, to develop networks and to take home examples of what works.
