Welcome to the May 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 learn about Stigma Pledge 2019, a new initiative which emphasises the importance of avoiding any language that stigmatises mental illness during the election campaign.

  • We find out about we can Raise Dough this month to support the one in four people in Australia aged 14–25 who live with a mental health difficulty.

  • We look ahead to the 2019 National Suicide Prevention Conference, which will bring together a range of people and organisations working and researching in the area of suicide prevention, as well as people with lived experience.

  • And we learn about the suicide prevention and cultural competency training being provided by MindOUT and QLife to ensure the best possible support for LGBTI populations around Australia.
