Preventing suicide is a national priority, with important national policy work and funding, and activities happening across the health, mental health and social service sectors. SPA plays a critical role in advocacy, policy development, driving best practice, innovation, and collaboration across the sector.

“A world without suicide is a goal we must commit to, and by working together we can play a part in shaping the way we approach this complex challenge.”

“I look forward to making a contribution and supporting the important work that SPA does, and working with my fellow directors who are equally passionate about suicide prevention,” said Mr Black.
