our speakers hub – Voices of In-Sight

The “Voices of In-Sight” Speakers Hub delivers professional speakers training to volunteers with a lived experience of suicide.  Our Speakers, through their stories and experience, provide valuable insights into suicide and suicide prevention, and deliver practical preventative information to their audiences.

We are the only speakers training program offered within Australia that is designed and delivered by people with a lived experience of suicide for people with a lived experience of suicide.

Our Speakers Hub is endorsed by AISRAP, National StandBy Response and MindFrame.

We define lived experience as . . . …having experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for someone who has been suicidal, or been bereaved by suicide.

The Speakers Hub operates in all States and Territories.

Speakers are available to present throughout Australia, in a wide range of locations, including social sector organisations and corporate workplaces across all industries.

Benefits of including a lived experience speaker in your event?

Our Speakers have been trained to share their personal experience of suicide in the context of raising awareness, educating, providing insights into early warning signs, invitations for help, how to have difficult conversations, where to source help and what helped them through their own experience.

Organisations, clubs, workplaces, schools, community groups . . . we have speakers from all walks of life, with a wide range of experiences that can be matched to your specific need.  Whether you are looking to raise awareness or are responding to a recent suicide loss, our speakers can bring insights, comfort and hope to your audience.
