Whether it is for conversations with friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances, #YouCanTalk also highlights the resources available to support these conversations.
The main message is you don’t need to be a clinician, a GP, or a nurse to check-in with someone you are worried about.
Trust your instincts and access suicide prevention resources to assist you in having the discussion.
This includes recognising the signs that someone is thinking of suicide, how to talk about it openly and honestly and what to do if someone says they are not coping and needs help.
#YouCanTalk is about giving people the confidence to have the conversation by connecting them to the tools that can support them.
Life in Mind is a digital gateway providing organisations and communities with access to tools such as current information, programs, services, resources and research within suicide prevention in Australia.
