Each year we organise an event or conference to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September, to share high quality suicide prevention information with a broad range of stakeholders who contribute to suicide prevention in New Zealand.
In 2011, we began a new series of webinars: live and interactive online broadcasts aimed at sharing information and actions that friends, whānau and professionals can take to help prevent suicide.

Preventing Māori suicide - webinar series 2013
In March 2013, we completed a series of three free webinars sharing indigenous knowledge and perspectives on Māori suicide prevention. The series was held in collaboration with the Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Māori, Victoria University of Wellington, and was attended by a wide range of kaimahi/professionals and community leaders who work with Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, hapori Māori and individuals.
