Welcome to the August 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 catch up with R U OK? spokesperson Rachel Quick to find out how we can reach out to a work colleague we’re worried about and start a meaningful conversation with them.
  • We find out about Lifeline Australia’s Holding on to Hope podcast series, in which people who have come through the darkness of suicidality share the connection that gave them hope to continue living.
  • We encourage you to Cycle Around the Globe to raise awareness of the risks of suicide and to fund suicide prevention activities.
  • We speak with Suicide Prevention Australia CEO Nieves Murray at the end of 2019 National Suicide Prevention Conference to find out about some of her highlights from this year’s event.
  • And we hear about the R U OK? Trust the Signs Tour which is visiting every state and territory and engaging 24 communities in an educational experience.
