our vision

Our Vision

To save lives and reduce emotional pain

Our Dream

For people with a lived experience of suicide to be actively informing, advising and enhancing all aspects of suicide prevention.

Our Mission

To empower people to live

Our Strategy

Roses in the Ocean exists to reduce the incidence of suicide in the world today.  We do this by:

  • creating opportunities for the wider community to connect meaningfully for suicide prevention
  • building the capacity of people with experience experience to actively influence and inform suicide prevention policy, research, service provision and strategy
  • changing the way suicide is understood, spoken about and prevented
  • sharing the real life prevention behaviours that empower people to live a fulfilling life

Our Values

Roses in the Ocean values:

  • life                                     perhaps unsurprisingly, our first value is life
  • learning                           we create opportunities for people to learn from those with lived experience
  • health                               a healthy life and positive behaviours make a difference
  • connection                      the best things in life are shared with those we care about
  • openness & honesty      there has been too much silence
  • collaboration                  we don’t have all the answers but we can help
  • fun                                    because suicide prevention is about life, and life is meant to be fun
