Welcome to the September 2018 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?
  • We find out about the #YouCanTalk campaign, which aims to empower and increase confidence when it comes to talking about suicide.
  • We speak with MATES in Construction CEO Jorgen Gullestrup.
  • We catch up with Glen Poole from the Australian Men’s Health Forum.
  • We look at the support beyondblue’s free NewAccess mental health coaching program can provide for people affected by the drought.
  • And we speak with SANE Australia about recent research which shows people living with complex mental illness are 13-45 times more likely to take their own life than those living without mental illness.
