Life in Mind supports launch of national #YouCanTalk suicide prevention campaign

Posted 19th July 2018 in General

Life in Mind is excited to announce the launch of the #YouCanTalk campaign, a landmark joint national suicide prevention initiative which was unveiled today at Parliament House, Canberra.

Led by some of Australia’s leading mental health and suicide prevention organisations, the #YouCanTalk initiative aims to empower the general public to have open, safe and honest conversations about suicide by connecting them to the tools and resources that can support them.

Collaboratively supported by beyondblue, Black Dog Institute, Everymind, headspace, Lifeline, ReachOut and R U OK?, the main message of #YouCanTalk is that you don’t need to be a clinician, a GP or a nurse to check-in with someone.

The launch also coincides with Life in Mind’s social media’s presence going live, providing an online channel for the sharing and discussion of suicide prevention programs, resources and information for communities and the wider suicide prevention sector.

The campaign’s focus is to direct individuals and organisations to the Life in Mind campaign page which provides access to a range of national resources and links designed to support people on how to have safe conversations and find relevant services and support.

Life in Mind is a digital gateway providing organisations and communities with access to current suicide prevention information, programs, services, resources and research across Australia.

Visit the #YouCanTalk page to find out more about how your community, organisation, or business can start open and honest conversations about suicide and participate in the campaign.
