28th World Congress of the International Association for Suicide Prevention

Montréal, Quebec
June 16-20, 2015

The congress theme, New Discoveries and Technologies in Suicide Prevention, focuses on presenting cutting-edge research and clinical insights from the beginning of the 21st century. However, as in all International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) Congresses, a full range of topics will be covered, from the latest discoveries in biology and genetics, to culturally sensitive prevention practices and suicidology and the arts.

This congress will bring together researchers, practitioners, helpline workers,  programme planners, graduate students and persons concerned with suicide bereavement, from a range of disciplines around the world.

This is a joint congress with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) and the Québec Association for Suicide Prevention (AQPS), and is sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO).  The official languages are English and French (the official language of the Province of Québec) and there will be simultaneous translation of all plenary and a selection of parallel sessions, with a possibility of sessions in Spanish as well.
