Australia’s leading lived experience of suicide organisation, Roses in the Ocean exists to save lives and to reduce emotional distress and pain.
We know that individuals with a lived experience of suicide – those who have experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for someone through suicidal crisis or been bereaved by suicide – are well placed toinform, influence and enhance suicide prevention activities in their local communities or workplaces.Much of our activity involves empowering individuals to leverage their lived expertise and supporting communities to better recognise and respond to suicide.
Roses in the Oceancollaborateswith individuals and organisations across community, corporate, health and government sectors to effectively and meaningfully engage lived experience of suicide expertise with all aspects of suicide prevention.Driving system reform, co-designing innovative services, and affecting cultural change are key focuses as we strive tocontribute to best practice and a growing evidence base.
