Organizations Filed Purposes: IASP is dedicated to preventing suicide and suicidal behaviour, alleviating its effects, and providing a forum for academics, mental health professionals, crisis workers, volunteers and suicide survivors.

IASP continues to build on existing and new networks for the dissemination of research and evidenced based practice. The World Congresses, Regional conferences, symposia and workshops provide a significant platform to share knowledge, skills, research and good practices, for those involved in suicide prevention; from academics and researchers, policy makers, to NGOs and those working in the community. Sessions vary greatly from research outcomes to workshops, training opportunities and a public forum. Published under the Auspices of the International Association for Suicide Prevention, Crisis - The Journal of Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention is an international periodical that publishes original articles on suicidology and crisis intervention.

IASP membership is at the core of the organisation and remains the focus for all IASP deliverables. Membership is open to all those interested in suicide prevention, benefits include joining special interest groups, lower priced conference fees and a subscription to the scientific journal 'Crisis.' Special Interest Groups represent multi-disciplinary networks, who work together to pursue a shared interest in a specific and legitimate suicide prevention topic, with a view to making a substantive contribution to improved understanding, practice or policy relating to that topic. Early career researchers, clinicians, healthcare and related professionals play a key role suicide prevention and the activities of IASP. Development of this community group will contribute to capacity building, sustainability and effectiveness of suicide prevention strategy and action in the future.

World Suicide Prevention Day WSPD is an annual task of IASP to increase the visibility of suicide prevention and raise awareness globally. Its effectiveness is favourably reported as a policy achievement in the World Health Organisation's World Suicide Report 2014. The World Suicide Prevention Day program reaches over 60 countries in which events and media coverage are held in support of national campaigns to reduce suicide. Materials are provided in over 55 languages and both global and national activities increase coverage and community reach. WSPD leads into World Mental Health Day a month later and IASP contributes to this campaign too. Other aligned international days are also supported.
