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

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.
