Welcome to the March 2017 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 support headspace can provide you with if you’re a young person who’s going through a tough time, or if you’re experiencing problems with your mental health.
  • We profile the SANE Forums, which provide a genuine online peer-to-peer support service for people affected by mental illness across Australia, including carers and families, as well as people with lived experience of mental illness.
  • We catch up with the dedicated team at the Survivors and Mates Support Network, an organisation that works to support men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse and raise awareness about it in the community.
  • We hear about the work Suicide Prevention Australia is undertaking in the coming months to work towards their goal of ‘a world without suicide’.
  • And we learn about the support offered by Kids Helpline, Australia’s only free, 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25
