Community Broadcasting Suicide Prevention Project - October 2022

The Community Broadcasting Association is pleased to welcome you to the October 2022 content of our national suicide prevention and mental health awareness project, developed with the support of the Australian Government Department of Health.

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, following on from the recent R U OK? Day and World Suicide Prevention Day, we catch up Jackie Hallan from ReachOut to find out why it’s important for young people to actively check in on their friends to see if they’re okay.

We encourage you to put One Foot Forward this Mental Health Month by participating in this free virtual walking event where you can walk, run or roll in solidarity for the 1 in 5 Australians who experience symptoms of mental illness every year.

We look ahead to another Movember event where many people around Australia will be growing a mo, hosting an event, or getting moving to raise funds and awareness for mental health.

We find out how business leaders, owners and employees can build an R U OK? culture in their workplace so that everyone feels safe, supported and encouraged. 

And we learn that more Australians with complex mental health issues can now access SANE’s free, guided online and phone support service.

 

For more information on this project, please contact the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia on (02) 9310 2999, or email: iwatson@cbaa.org.au

Segments can be accesed through the CRN box
