Welcome to the July 2018 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 look at the Young Faces of Mental Illness project, which helped 14 young adults to share their stories, raise awareness, reduce stigma and encourage help-seeking.
  • We find out about Testing Times, a new campaign suicide prevention charity R U OK? has launched for universities with the aim of encouraging students to look out for each other, especially around exam time.
  • We remind people about the Suicide Call Back Service, a free nationwide professional telephone and online counselling for anyone affected by suicide.
  • We profile the work the Mindframe National Media Initiative is doing to encourage responsible, accurate and sensitive representation of mental illness and suicide in the Australian mass media.
  • And we hear about the information, advice and support headspace can provide if you’re a young person who’s experiencing depression, or if you’re going through a tough time.
