Male Suicide Prevention Trial: Community Forum

Community Forum

Suicide kills six men a day in Australia and one man a minute worldwide. Although suicide is complex and challenging, as a community we can take measures to prevent them. With this in mind, the Launceston Suicide Prevention Trial is running two community forums for people who are interested in taking action to prevent male suicide.


The forums are facilitated by the Stop Male Suicide project and will cover four key areas:

  • How can we think differently about male suicide?
  • What works for men at risk of suicide?
  • Which groups of men are at risk?
  • What action can we take to prevent male suicide in our community?


The forums are suitable for community workers and volunteers, health and social care professionals, academics, policy makers, community members, people working with men and boys and anyone interested in taking action to prevent male suicide in their community. Places are limited so if you are interested in taking part then please reserve you place today.

These forums are being run as a part of the Launceston Suicide Prevention trial. To learn more, click here.
