Servier Foundation and Lifeline Suicide Prevention Research Foundation Collaboration

In 2011, Lifeline launched its Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Through the Foundation, Lifeline will work with academic and professional experts to build the evidence base for its services, ensuring evidence based practice and workable techniques around suicide prevention.

In 2012 Servier Australia generously funded a three year research project through Lifeline's Suicide Foundation, that will investigate improved pathways for people with complex needs, many of whom have mental illnesses or are suicidal, and who are in contact with crisis support services, such as Lifeline's 13 11 14.

Through this research, Lifeline will find better ways to assist these individuals with accessing continuing professional care, and will create better partnerships between crisis services and clinical services.

Lifeline would like to thank Servier Australia for showing leadership within the health industry, by being the first corporate contributor to Lifeline's Suicide Prevention Foundation.
