Welcome to the April 2019 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 learn about STRONGER TOGETHER, a targeted suicide prevention campaign R U OK? has launched to help build conversations within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
  • We hear about Mindframe’s new Alcohol and Other Drugs guidelines, which aim to support the media and other stakeholders to communicate safely, respectfully and responsibly about alcohol and other drugs.
  • We find out about the support and information Beyond Blue provides for people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
  • We look at the mental health and suicide prevention support MindOUT and QLife provide for LGBTI populations around Australia.
  • And we look at the vital services and support that Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Australia (PANDA) provides to expecting and new parents, including a specialist national mental health telephone counselling service.
