An important part of our work is understanding and challenging the social elements that impact suicide.
Lifeline Research Foundation creates new knowledge, as well as engaging in public education, awareness building and advocacy in relation to suicide prevention. One of the Foundation’s key functions is to conduct research that informs the development of effective, evidence-based programs to support Lifeline’s vision for an Australia free of suicide. The systematic process of research ‘translation’, or implementation science, creates an essential link between research and practical outcomes for people seeking help and crisis supporters. All the Foundation’s projects receive input from academic partners and Lifeline’s Lived Experience Advisory Group.
