Welcome to the April 2017 content of our national suicide prevention and mental health awareness project, developed with the support of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing.

Each month, our project team develops a series of 20 short radio segments designed to promote help-seeking behaviour and positive lifestyle choices, using interviews with service providers, as well as profiles of people who have successfully dealt with tough times in their lives.

What's in this month's segments?
  • This month we catch up with Pete Shmigel, the CEO of Lifeline, who tells us about some of the services they provide for people who are feeling suicidal.
  • We talk to Kids Helpline, Australia’s only free, 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25, about the impacts of stigma on the willingness of young people to seek help when they're going through a tough time.
  • We hear about Suicide Prevention Australia’s Lived Experience Network, which allows those impacted by suicide to meet other people with similar experiences as a way to gain support and to share their wisdom with others.
  • We learn about headspace School Support, a program that aims to provide suicide prevention and bereavement support for students currently in school.
  • And we look at the support, information, and links to service providers and recovery groups the Butterfly Foundation provides for the large numbers of Australians affected by eating disorders, and their families and friends.
