THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION ANNOUNCES MAJOR RE-BRANDING

The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), today, is proud to launch their re-branded logo and re-designed website.

ROYSTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED KINGDOM, April 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), today, is proud to launch their re-branded logo and re-designed website.

IASP leads the global effort in suicide prevention having developed an effective forum that is proactive in creating strong collaborative partnerships and promoting evidence-based action. in order to reduce the incidence of suicide and suicidal behaviour.

The re-design and re-branding process has been undertaken with IASP members’ needs in mind and is underpinned by the organisations’ mission. The design concept behind the new website was to provide a functional space for sharing knowledge and information, strengthening our forum and network.

This concept was underpinned by the re-branding of the IASP logo. Designed by Aled Jones at NotJones Studio, the logo merges IASP's informative and uplifting values to create a symbol that visually represents an eclipse, the umbra covering the bright sun beneath as a symbol of hope towards furthering suicide prevention.

Professor Rory O’Connor, President of IASP stated “This has been a time of positive progress for the organisation. This re-brand is an important step in ensuring we have access to a functional space to share our knowledge, to help us achieve our collective endeavour to prevent suicide globally.”

Whilst IASP is not a crisis centre, as the global lead in suicide prevention, IASP shares a resolve and responsibility to connect people in crisis to help. To that endeavour, our new website holds a collaboration with Find a Helpline, an online tool that connects people to helplines in over 50 countries.
