  • Jennifer Ma (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Each year it is estimated that over 700,000 people die by suicide worldwide. Though preventable, suicidal thoughts and behaviours are complex phenomenon influenced by several interacting factors, including personal, social, psychological, cultural, biological, and environmental. This presentation will provide an overview of research conducted, as part of a 2-year Suicide Prevention Australia Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship, to: (1) develop and expand evidence around the protective factors against suicide in the community, (2) support the development of stakeholder-informed suicide prevention and intervention initiatives, and (3) refine suicide theory and models to better facilitate their translation in suicide prevention policy and practice.
