Part of Suicide Prevention Australia, LEN defines lived experience as someone who has experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for someone who has attempted suicide, been bereaved by suicide, or been touched by suicide in another way. LEN advocates for people with lived experience of suicide to have an equal seat at the table when developing policy, strategy, services and programs as well as research and evaluation in the belief that this will enrich our understanding of suicide and its prevention.
