About Us

Located at Griffith University's Mt Gravatt campus, the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention is at the forefront of national and international suicide research. Recognised for its scientific standing, the Institute under the leadership of Professor Diego De Leo became a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Suicide Prevention in July 2005.

The Institute conducts research in all aspects of suicide prevention and manages the Queensland Suicide Register. Apart from research activities, AISRAP provides education and training for health and allied professionals. Offering postgraduate programs in suicidology in 2001 was a world first. In addition, the Institute holds Suicide Prevention Skills Training workshops for professionals and consumers. Workshops are tailored to specific organizational needs of workers, and are delivered within an adult learning framework.

In 2004, the Institute opened the Life Promotion Clinic at Griffith University. This was the first outpatient facility in Australia focused on providing specialised treatment to people with a history of suicidal behaviour.
