Welcome to the November 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:

This month we catch up with the team at Lifeline to find out about the 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention services they provide to those experiencing a personal crisis.

We catch up with suicide prevention organisation R U OK? to find out about their launch of RUOK Mate, an Action on Google where you can role play scenarios and get tips on how, when and where to ask ‘are you okay?’.

We learn about the information and support you can access through SANE Australia if you’re caring for someone who is living with complex mental health issues.

We speak with ReachOut CEO Ashley de Silva about some practical things young people can do to cope with stress and ensure they stay well during exam periods.

And we catch up with author, mental health advocate and Beyond Blue worker Jill Stark to learn about Imposter Syndrome and things people can do if they experience feelings of anxiety or inadequacy in the workplace.
