What's in this month's segments?

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.

This month we learn about the focus of this year’s R U OK?Day, a national day of action when all Australians are reminded that every day is the day to ask “Are you OK?” if someone in our world is struggling with life’s ups and downs.

We find out about data released from Butterfly Foundation and ReachOut which shows a sharp spike in the number of young people seeking help online when it comes to body image and eating disorders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We look at the support provided by Kids Helpline, Australia’s only free, private and confidential 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25.

We catch up with SANE peer ambassador Jo Buchanan to find out how the You Are Not Alone website supports carers of someone who has attempted suicide, or who is at risk of doing so.

And we look ahead to PANDA Week in November, which this year focuses on letting expecting and new parents who are struggling know they’re not alone and can reach out to someone who cares.
