I have been (was) formally nominated for A LiFE award in the Public Sector section of the annual Australian Suicide Prevention Association (S.P.A.) awards.
A little about this association and these awards (slightly edited) from their website is below …
‘S.P.A. is the national peak body for the suicide prevention sector in Australia with a role in providing policy advice to governments, community awareness, public education and increased involvement in research.
It’s the only national umbrella body in suicide prevention throughout Australia, a broad-based organisation bringing together diverse interests across disciplines, practitioners, researchers, and the community affected by suicide and self harm.
S.P.A. supports communities and organisations throughout Australia, and promotes collaboration and partnerships in suicide and self harm prevention, intervention and postvention.
The Annual LiFE Awards recognise excellence in suicide prevention and are a prestigious national event that attract nominations from all areas including business, industry, media, community, government, youth research and medicine.’
Award winners were announced at the opening ceremony of the SPA annual conference in Perth, July 23rd.
Congratulations (24.7.14.) to the award winner in my section ‘Public Sector Award’ – ‘Young and Well CRC’-
