Welcome to the July 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?
  • We learn how you can contribute to building a suicide safety net around your community by taking part in the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) program.
  • R U OK? spokesperson Rachel Quick explains why it’s important for us to look after each other at work.
  • We profile the SANE Help Centre, which is a great place to contact if you have any questions about mental illness and related topics.
  • We catch up with PANDA CEO Terri Smith and ask why it’s important that all Australians have the confidence to reach out for the perinatal anxiety and depression support they need as early as possible.
  • Jonathan Leeming from Suicide Prevention Australia tells us about some of the highlights of this year’s National Suicide Prevention Conference, including the various streams that will be part of the conference program.
  • We speak with the team at headspace to find out how young people can go about broadening their range of relationships and connections.
  • We profile QLife, a national counselling and referral service for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or intersex, as well as their family members, friends and loved ones.
  • And more ...
