Join us in Chicago, IL for our 55th Annual Conference, April 27-30, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.

The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) is proud to host AAS22, its 55th Annual Conference, April 27 – 30, 2022. The conference will take place via a unique format – both in person in Chicago, IL at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and also virtually for those across the globe.

The strength of the AAS annual conference is that it brings together multiple sectors focused on the common goal of preventing suicide and saving lives. Our primary objectives of AAS22 are to:

  • Better equip those on the front line of prevention through translation and application of research;
  • Identify new and evolving research that will help prevent suicides;
  • Embrace and integrate equity into the conference conversations; and
  • Integrate the voices of lived experience—including impacted family members—throughout all disciplines.
