our story

Roses in the Ocean exists to reduce emotional distress and pain, and to save lives.

Roses in the Ocean is building a trained and supported workforce of empowered individuals with personal, lived experiences of suicide.

Members of the Lived Experience Collective are actively engaged in communities and organisations that share our vision to reduce emotional distress and pain and to save lives.

The intrinsic value of individuals with a lived experience of suicide permeates Roses in the Ocean’s research partnerships, capacity-building workshops and consulting expertise.

We know that the insights gained from individuals who have experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for loved ones through crisis, or been bereaved through suicide, provide us with powerful opportunities to inform, influence and enhance suicide prevention activities.

As Australia’s leading exponent of lived experience of suicide, Roses in the Ocean collaborates with individuals and organisations across community, corporate, health and government sectors to effectively and meaningfully engage lived experience expertise with all aspects of suicide prevention.
