Led by some of Australia’s national mental health and suicide prevention organisations, the #YouCanTalk campaign is paving a new direction for suicide prevention in Australia.
The campaign, which features Roses in the Ocean Collective Members Kerry and Sam, aims to empower and increase confidence when it comes to talking about suicide.

A valuable member of our Lived Experience Collective and part time poster boy Sam Fewings hosted a 24 hour tennis-athon that raised $6500 for Roses in the Ocean. Check out his postcard and pics. Thanks again Sam!
TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON
We know the holiday season can be a difficult time for people with a lived experience of suicide. So, we asked our Collective what they do to make it through the holidays and the festive season. Here’s what they came up with. We hope something resonates with you.
SUBMISSIONS CLOSING SOON
We are seeking submissions that offer a glimpse into the pages of your story, to create Reflections of My Lived Experience – a publication that offers a message of strength, tenacity and hope. How has it changed you? What insights and learnings can you share? What advice would you give?
The Team at Roses in the Ocean will be taking a well-deserved break over the holiday season. The office will close on Friday 20 December and re-open on Monday 6 January 2020. We wish you all a healthy holiday and a prosperous New Year.
Roses in the Ocean exists to reduce emotional distress and pain, and to save lives.
We know that individuals who have experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for loved ones through crisis, or been bereaved through suicide, can provide us with powerful insights and opportunities to inform, influence and enhance suicide prevention activities.
As Australia’s leading lived experience of suicide organisation, 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.
