Iris Foundation fosters resilience, hope and connections in our community as a means to reducing the risk of suicide.
Iris Foundation works primarily on the Central Coast of New South Wales to help reduce the risk of suicide by facilitating and supporting awareness campaigns, programs and partnerships which enhance community connectedness and well-being.
Current mental health research identifies several protective factors that reduce a person’s risk of suicide. Accordingly, Iris Foundation’s work focuses on three key factors that contribute to good mental health – resilience, hope and connections.
- Children or young people
- People with an increased risk of suicide
- Suicide Prevention Australia
