#You Can Talk for suicide prevention

Leading mental health and suicide prevention organisations are collaborating to support #YouCanTalk – a campaign to encourage, empower and equip Australians to play a more active role in suicide prevention. The holiday period can be a particularly difficult time for many Australians. Feelings of loneliness and isolation during the Christmas and New Year period can be common. 

While it can be difficult to talk about suicide, research shows anyone can have a positive influence on a friend, family or work colleague they are worried about by starting a conversation, and supporting them to seek help. To learn more about starting a conversation with someone who you feel may be experiencing thoughts of suicide, please visit: www.lifeinmindaustralia.com.au/youcantalk
