Suicide has challenged the minds and stretched the resources of some of the most eminent researchers, governments, for-purpose organisations and philanthropists for many years. Despite significant investment, suicide rates among young Australians are increasing and it continues to be the leading cause of death for 15- to 24-year-olds in Western Australia.

At the YLM Foundation we believe a collection of diverse brains unlock better solutions. We’re a collective of bright, diverse minds. We collide mathematicians with clinicians, statisticians with psychologists, bringing a breadth of intelligence to one of the toughest problems in the research world: predicting the unpredictability of suicide. We partner with care workers and clinicians to build a tool they can trust, a world first dynamic index of suicide vulnerability. This will transform level of accuracy and personalisation of care plans and delivery of services, so support can reach the right individual, at the right time.
