Welcome to the September 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 catch up with Suicide Prevention Australia to talk about World Suicide Prevention Day, when numerous events, conferences, campaigns and local activities call to public attention one of the world’s largest causes of premature and unnecessary death.
  • We profile the SANE Blog, which is a great place to go to find articles about a range of topics related to mental health and illness, and which has recently been redesigned to make the content more accessible and easier to search.
  • We catch up with Gus Worland, the winner of this year’s LiFE Award for Excellence in Suicide Prevention for his role as presenter of the three-part series Man Up, which explores the struggles Australian men face and the barriers to them seeking help and support.
  • We encourage all Australians to use R U OK? Day (September 14) to reach out to anyone they know who might be doing it tough, and ask them if they’re okay.
  • And we look at the support offered to new and expecting parents by the National Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Helpline, which has recently extended its operating hours.
