National Suicide Prevention Project

Print

CBAA national suicide prevention and mental health awareness project, in partnership with the Australia Government Department of Health.

Each month, 20 short radio segments are released to community broadcasters across Australia. They are 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. The purpose of the project is to:

  • raise awareness of suicide prevention;
  • reduce the stigma around suicide;
  • reduce the prevalence of suicide and suicidal behaviours in Australia and its impact on individuals, their families and communities.

Broadcasters can find the latest audio segments in the articles below.
