About Life in Mind

Life in Mind is a knowledge exchange portal providing translated research, evidence, policy, data and resources in suicide prevention and host of the National communications charter (the Charter).

The Life in Mind program provides:

  • Regular easy-to-understand communication materials, underpinned by a science communication strategy, to connect suicide prevention (and related) sectors to the evidence, information and resources they need.
  • An up-to-date suicide prevention knowledge exchange digital portal providing access to data, research, policy, and best practice examples.
  • A National Communications Charter (The Charter) and implementation support to ensure consistent, safe and non-stigmatising messaging about suicide and suicide prevention across sectors.

Life in Mind provides sector leadership through collaboration and engagement, and facilitates access to current evidence-based suicide prevention resources, services, research and policy through an easily accessible digital portal.

The program aims to reduce suicidal behaviours and suicide rate in Australia, as well as supporting consistent and coordinated messaging surrounding suicide attempts, responses to suicide and its impacts.

Life in Mind is a program of Everymind, funded by the Australian Department of Health National Suicide Prevention Leadership and Support Program.
