Welcome to the December 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 SANE Australia Deputy CEO Dr Michelle Blanchard to find out about a new national survey that seeks to understand the life experiences of people living with severe and complex mental health issues. We find out about the support and services you can access from Lifeline throughout the holiday period. We catch up with SANE Australia CEO Jack Heath to find out how you can look after yourself if you’re caring for someone with complex mental health issues. We learn about the PANDA at Work Toolkit, which provides a range of resources for managers and HR professionals to support the mental health of their staff members who are expecting a baby, on parental leave or returning to work after having a baby. And we catch up with Dr Grant Blashki from Beyond Blue to get some advice on how to plan ahead if Christmas is a time where you can feel stressed, down or isolated.
